WILLIAM McKINLEY (1843-1901) 
25th US President, Governor of Ohio

Unique pair of original prescription notes drawn on the US Naval Dispensary in Washington, DC. Handwritten prescriptions from Dr. Rixey. Presley Marion Rixey was a Surgeon General of the United States Navy and personal physician to Presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. The prescriptions are made out "For the President" (dated October 20, 1899) and "For Mrs. McKinley," prescribing specific mixtures for each of them, with instructions. Mrs. McKinley, for example, was to take a tablespoonful of "Wine of Phospho-Glycerite of Lime" with meals. Fascinating and utterly unique - we have never seen a similar presidential/first lady item before, let alone two of them for the first couple. Archivally framed with a beautiful period color portrait of the two of them. $2500.00
