    Wade Hampton Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 8.5" x 11", Sapphire, NC; September 3, 1901. A letter addressed to General Munford, in which Hampton, who had left town to seek a better climate for health reasons, responds to a complaint about an "unjust judge".

    Richard Taylor Autograph Letter Signed. Two pages of a bifolium, 4" x 6", Winchester, VA; December 18, 1875. Taylor responds to an invitation from General Dabney Maury, and sends his regrets for not being able to attend. An additional note on verso, signed by B.C.
