Osborn, Chase S.

TYPED LETTER SIGNED TO HENRY A. MONTGOMERY, OSBORN'S WAYNE COUNTY CAMPAIGN MANAGER IN HIS 1918 U.S. SENATORIAL CAMPAIGN VS. TRUMAN NEWBERRY AND HENRY FORD.

Sault de Sainte Marie July 24, 1918. 1pg, 11 x 8.5", on Osborn's letterhead, staple holes, some discolor, folds else vg. Regarding the campaign: Newberry had agreed to withdraw if Osborn would do the same, and they could agree on a candidate; another hopeful, former senator (William Alden) Smith would agree to the pact only if Henry Ford would, too. Osborn: "Of course, I refused to go in with Ford." This refusal led to a bitter campaign between Newberry and Ford, won by Newberry who was later tossed from the Senate for dirty tricks in the campaign. Nice content.
