Description

    General Daniel E. Sickles Archive. Interesting lot of nine items from General Daniel Sickles' papers, which includes four unsigned and undated draft letters (one page each. 5.25" x 8.25") regarding personal matters, primarily requests to help his son acquire a job with the Department of State. Each of these draft letters is written on Sickles' New York Board of Aldermen letterhead. The lot also contains an exceptional seven-page handwritten manuscript (8" x 11") written the year before his death on the verso of the New York Monuments Commission letterhead and titled "Washington's Winter Campaign in New Jersey in 1776-7 - Plain Evidence of Providential Help." The manuscript, initialed at the end, is written in a barely legible hand and describes the hardships of Washington's armies during the New Jersey campaign. Also included in this lot are three letters (various sizes) and one postcard sent to Sickles by Princess Vilma Paralaghy, noted portrait artist and daughter of Hungarian Baroness Zollmann von Zollerndorf, discussing her portrait of the General. Two of these letters are typed and one is handwritten; Sickles has added his signature to one of the typed letters. All items in this archive are in very good to fine condition. Prospective buyers are advised to view the collection carefully prior to bidding.
