Blair has not come down yet - I wait for him - will come home so soon as I get through with him. Breckenridge has gained quite a victory in East Tenn. Capturing six pieces of artillery and 50 wagons Bye Bye sweet one - Your own George ".

    Possibly written before September, 1863, this letter from General George E. Pickett is to his sweetheart, LaSalle Corbell. He mentions the victory of "Breckenridge" in Tennessee, which is possibly a reference to Confederate General John C. Breckinridge's participation in the Stones River Campaign on December 29, 1862. Slight fading from age, toning on verso, light folds, rough edge at bottom, ink is clear and legible, fine condition.
