Description

    Mrs. Gilbert Stuart (Charlotte): Autograph Letter Signed. Stampless cover mailed January 24, 1804 by Charlotte Stuart, who married the artist Gilbert Stuart in 1786. 8" x 10", 1p., Bordentown, New Jersey, written to Edward Stow of Philadelphia. An rather interesting letter in which Stuart inquires about the receipt of a parcel of three letters, one of which was supposed to be forwarded to her husband. In part: "... nothing could have induced me to have written but the utmost necessity... I had no doubt but you would have sent me a line if it was not convenient to send me the trifle. I am well aware of the many obligations we are under to you..." Loss at bottom, not affecting text.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
