    General Nelson Miles: A Fine Letter with Poignant Content Regarding the Plight of Native Americans. Written on December 12, 1892, on official Army stationery, Miles is responding to the Post Interpreter at Fort Reno. He thanks the agent for "obtaining the facts concerning the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians, and for your frank statements concerning the true condition of those unfortunate people. I cannot read the account of their suffering without deep sympathy." He closes, "I will make use of the substance of your information and will again call the attention of the Government to their wants, hoping that it may give them relief." 7.75" x 10" in excellent condition with spindle holes on left.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
