    Description

    Edgar Allan Poe Autograph Note Signed. Paper slip, 3.25" x .75" [sight], n.d., n.p. The note, which was likely excised from a letter, reads, "God bless you, my dear 'Muddy.'/ Your own Eddy." "Muddy" was Maria Poe Clemm, Edgar's father's sister. She was also Edgar's wife's mother, making her his aunt and mother-in-law. Poe (1809-1849) lived with Muddy after he was discharged from West Point in 1831. The last time she saw the author was when she helped him board a steamboat for Philadelphia on June 29, 1849. He mysteriously died in Baltimore three months later. Framed and matted together with an engraving of the author to an overall size of 14.25" x 18". Near fine. (The note has not been examined outside of the frame.)
