Invitation to the wedding of President Grover Cleveland and Miss Francis Folsom, held at the Executive Mansion, Washington, June 2, 1886. Engraved card.

Cleveland, at 49, was more than twice the age of Folsom, the daughter of his late law partner. They had known each other since her childhood, when Cleveland became executor of her father's estate and Frances' de facto legal guardian. The ceremony was held in the Blue Room of the White House, and was attended only by cabinet members, family, and close friends of the bride and groom. Only the second Cleveland wedding invitation we have encountered in 25 years selling presidential memorabilia.
