Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $875.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Confederate military officer and politician (1818-1902) who replaced J. E. B. Stuart as Lee's Chief of Cavalry following Stuart's death on the battlefield. Civil War-dated ALS, one page, 8 x 9, October 24, 1863. Letter to Governor Milledge Luke Bonham of South Carolina, concerning a special gun to be made by noted gunsmith William Glaze of the Palmetto Armory. In part: "I will pay for the new gun & Glaze says he can finish it in four weeks. I am anxious to take one with me, so that I may have others made in Richmond & that I may also give the gun a fair trial. Our experiment with it the other day was eminently successful & I think it will prove a very valuable arm. Four of them however are quite enough for four Regiments." In very good to fine condition, with light overall wrinkling, and toning to the extreme edges.
