Governor Rutherford B. Hayes to Guy M. Bryan, November 9, 1868

WASHINGTON, November 9, 1868.

DEAR GUY:—I came here last night chiefly to attend to your cause. The President has just given me an order for the pardon of yourself and brothers. I congratulate you all.

I concur fully with the sentiments of your letter. I hope you will all agree to one further amendment of the Constitution, viz., the basis of representation to be voters. This I deem very essential. Don't commit yourself against it until I can write you fully.

I return home tomorrow. All Cincinnati friends are well. Regards to your wife.

As ever,
