    Confederate General Edward Walthall Letter Signed. One page, 8" x 10", January 2, 1890, Washington, D.C., on "United States Senate" letterhead. Mississippi Senator Walthall, former Confederate general, has signed this postbellum letter recalling "ex Members of the Confederate Congress from Mississippi now living." On lined paper; fine.

    More Information:

    Walthall recalls, "Hon. J. W. C. Watson . . . J. A. P. Campbell . . . E. Barksdale . . . W. D. Holder. Mr Watson was a Senator, the others were members of the lower House. If I were in my office at home I could tell you positively whether the above list is complete, but as it is, having no data to refer to, I can only write you from memory."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
