LS signed “J. A. Garfield,” one page both sides, 5 x 8, December 13, 1877. Letter to Dr. John Peter Robison in Cleveland, in part: "We have concluded to leave here immediately after Christmas and will either go direct to Cleveland or will stop a day or two at Hiram to visit Father Rudolph's family. I will however let you know in advance the time of our arrival so that we may have a meeting of the Quintinkle either at your house in the City or at Jones' in Mentor, or what is better at both. Errett must not fail to come." In fine condition. Garfield mentions Reverend Isaac Errett, a longtime friend who delivered the eulogy at the fallen president's funeral in Cleveland on September 26, 1881. The 'Quintinkle' was a social club with annual meetings usually held at Robison's home.
