The Life of Rutherford Birchard Hayes Nineteenth President of the United States, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint) (paperback)

<P> Excerpt from The Life of Rutherford Birchard Hayes Nineteenth President of the United States, Vol. 2 During all the weeks of passionate partisan assertion and appeal, of constantly shifting surmises and reports, it was quite in the nature of things that threats of personal violence and hints of assassination should now and then burst into expression from desperate or ill-balanced persons. Mr. Hayes received many anonymous letters warning him that he should not live to be inaugurated if he persisted in standing upon his rights and were declared elected. At least one of these letters reached the public prints. It was dated at St. Louis and purported to be written by a Southern woman, though the penmanship appeared masculine. In phrases saturate with the very gall of bitterness, it bade Mr. Hayes remember the fate of Lincoln, and flee from the wrath to come. Of course neither to this letter nor to any other of similar quality did its recipient pay the least attention. He had faced death too often in the line of duty, on battlefield and bivouac, to be disturbed by the cowardly ravings of unknown miscreants who proposed to strike in the dark. No one can protect himself against the assassin's blow if the assassin is ready himself to risk ignominious death.
