My third great grandfather was active in the new Republican party.
Being the owner/publisher of a small Ohio newspaper, he corresponded with all sorts of people. He left a large collection of his letters, many from Civil War experiences. Also, quite a collection of orations and short articles on everything from politics to temperance. Oh, and stamps, as he was a postmaster prior to the war, Prairie du Chien WI.
Here is the R.B. Hayes response to a letter Greene sent to him. Included is the cover (I have the stamp separately). Also included is the transcript of this letter.
I shared this letter with the Hayes library in Ohio and they sent me a copy of the original letter from my ancestor to Hayes.
Thank you R.B. Hayes Presidential Library!
