Historical society unearths letters from President Cleveland

A New Hampshire historical society has discovered 13 boxes of business letters and handwritten messages from former President Grover Cleveland.

WMUR-TV reports officials with the Conway Historical Society discovered the papers in the building's attic, and they plan to put them on display at the town's public library this week.

Historical society representative Brian Wiggins says Cleveland's family donated a collection of documents from the president decades ago. He says the society thought they donated all of the items to the Library of Congress, but more appeared a few months ago.

Wiggins says the recent find includes letters to and from the first lady and legislation from the speaker of the House. Cleveland is the only U.S. president to serve non-consecutive terms (1885-1889, 1893-1897).

The papers will be on display Monday through Saturday at the Conway Public Library.
