This is a great looking original autographed letter from one of the most famous Generals of the Civil War. It has a fine ink signature of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. The autograph is on a three ruled page letter that measures 5-1/2 inches x 9-1/4th inches. It was written from New York on February 2, 1891, on letterhead reading, "No. 75 West 71st Street, New York." Only days before his death, Sherman writes this letter to Marie Post, wife of Albert K. Post, colorfully declining her invitation to dinner. He also apologizes for missing her at recent "teas," though he confesses that it "belittles" a man to run after "teas." At the end of the letter, below Sherman's signature, is written by Mrs. Post: "Written shortly before his last illness. General Sherman died February 14th 1891: twelve days after writing this letter. [Signed] Marie Caroline Post."The signature is is nice as you could ever hope for It comes with a nice large modern made image of Sherman in uniform. This one will look beautiful when it is framed and hung on your relic room wall.
