    Buffalo Bill Cody Autograph Letter Signed "W.F. Cody." Two pages, 8.5" x 11", Wild West & Sells-Floto Letterhead, Kalamazoo, Michigan, July 29, 1915. This letter was written to Irving Bacon, it reads in part, " …I am hard set against it but I send your $100 first of the week and send as fast as I can. All shows have had awful bad business. I sometimes feel like giving up entirely…" This is interesting content, as we see Cody being frustrated at his shows. The letter comes complete with its original envelope, cancelled on July 29, 1915.

    The letter is in fine condition; usual folds are present; small tears on the left edge and lower edge; stains present on verso; notes made in red ink on the obverse. The envelope has a large tear along the upper edge from being torn open. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
