    Description

    Fitzhugh Lee Typed Letter Signed. One page, Richmond, Virginia, December 13, 1893, to General Peyton Wise. A concise letter, signed by the former Confederate general and governor of Virginia at the bottom in black ink, thanking Wise for a kind letter, and referencing a recent loss in a senate race to Thomas Martin, mentioning how he was "defeated by the adroit, partisan use of railroad money. Had there been no Railroad money, there would have been no Tom Martin."
    Condition: Smoothed folds, evenly toned, with chipped edges, black smudges at the top-left, and a small area of loss at the right side of the horizontal fold.
