Sheridan: War-date Autograph Letter Signed with Two Cartes de Visite. 5" x 7.25" ALS, 1p., n.p., February 15, 1865, written to fellow-General Wesley Merritt, in full: "My Dear Merritt If you desire to go to Baltimore for a day or so come on - I will start from here at 11 o'clock.

On March 2nd, he defeated Jubal Early at Waynesboro. Paper remnants on verso from prior mounting in an album. Clean overall with strong signature. Sold together with an Anthony marked CDV of Sheridan in his most famous pose (minor pin pricks at top extremity) and a CDV of an engraving of Sheridan (paper remnants at front top corners).
