    Description

    John Wallace "Captain Jack" Crawford Autograph Letter Signed "John Wallace Capt Jack Crawford". Two pages, 8" x 10", December 30, [no date], New York, to D. W. Benham, Tiffin, Ohio. In this interesting letter Crawford, the "Poet Scout", writes to retired General Daniel W. Benham asking him for contributions to a book he was in preparation of writing. But perhaps most interesting is Crawford's post script in which he informs the general that: "I have just commenced to my name with my mothers Wallace I believe it's got a better ring to it - one feels like a Scottish Chief Scots Wah Hea Jack". From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Slightly toned with the usual fold creases, otherwise very good.
