The Writings of Carl Schurz/To James A. Garfield, November 3d, 1880
TO JAMES A. GARFIELD
Department of the Interior,
Washington, Nov. 3, 1880.
My dear Garfield: I congratulate you and the country most sincerely on your success. Quod felix faustumque sit. Your real troubles will now begin. But, as I have frequently taken occasion to say during the campaign, President James A. Garfield will have only to act according to the teachings of Member of Congress Garfield to give this country one of the most wholesome Administrations it ever had. Accept my cordial wishes.
