Copper boom town Butte, Montana, notorious as a lawless town filled with bars and brothels, began to turn around when this noted Butte merchant, a progressive Republican, was elected mayor in 1935 (until 1941) and proclaimed in his inaugural address, "It is doubtful if any city is in a more deplorable physical and financial condition" and set about to clean up the town. TNS, 1p, 8½" X 11", Butte, MT, 1940 August 2. Addressed to Samuel Tuzzo. Very good. On "City of Butte" letterhead noting "Office of Mayor," Hauswirth writes, "It is with pleasure that I add my name to your list of signatures." He signs in full in bold green ink. Fun bit of unusual Old West history. Bookseller Inventory # 31968
