    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."
