    C.S.A. General John Echols Autograph Letter Signed "Jno: Echols". One page with verso docketing, 5" x 8", lined paper, Dublin [Virginia], October 22, 1864, to Maj. J. Stoddard Johnston, assistant adjutant general. Written while Echols was in charge of the District of Southwestern Virginia, it reads in full, "Mr. John C. Bowyer, C.S. Commissioner, Staunton Va, wishes a permit to take two barrels of flour, and some other small family supplies from this Department to Staunton. I enclose his affidavit. Will you give the permit & forward it to me? I will see it sent to him." Fine condition with original folds, a bit of toning away from the text and mounting tape traces on verso.
    Provenance:The William Turner Collection
