#322 - George S. Patton Typed Letter Signed Estimate: $6,000+

"I know that to such a patriotic and Christian man as yourself it is futile to sympathize, but I do congratulate you on having had a son who died for victory"

World War II-dated TLS signed “G. S. Patton, Jr.,” one page, 7.25 x 8.5, Headquarters, Third United States Army letterhead, January 19, 1945. Letter to Tenney Williams in California, in part: "I deeply appreciate your letter of December 20 and the enclosed leaflet from the Church of Our Savior. I know that to such a patriotic and Christian man as yourself it is futile to sympathize, but I do congratulate you on having had a son who died for victory and having another son who is so anxious to play his part. The Division to which he belongs is just about to join this Army." Double-matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 19.25 x 14.75. In very good to fine condition, with creasing and light staining to the right side. Patton would be killed in an automobile accident at the end of the year. A highly sought-after war-dated letter boasting superb, patriotic content.
