- President RUTHERFORD B. HAYES Autograph SENTIMENT -- Quotation from SHAKESPEARE’S Famous Tragedy HAMLET -

SUPERB autograph sentiment SIGNED (no place / no date) by U.S. PRESIDENT Rutherford B. Hayes - with a rare reference to a line in Shakespeare’s most famous play HAMLET, the most powerful and influential tragedy in the English language. R. B. Hayes writes, “Use, says Shakespeare, will almost change the stamp of Nature” (HAMLET Act III / Scene IV / Line 168).

Written entirely in President Hayes own hand and SIGNED by him at the conclusion, the SIGNED SENTIMENT reads in full - Strive to know thoroughly your own natural faculties – your defects as well as your strong points, for by attention at well directed efforts you can make your weak points your strong ones. “Use, says Shakespeare, will almost change the stamp of Nature”. Rutherford B. Hayes (signed)
