An envelope stamped with a return address stamp from the Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York, addressed in Custer's hand, "Mrs. Genl Custer/ Monroe, Mich". This letter could possibly date from 1866; Custer was mustered out of the Army in January 1866, and he stayed in New York at the Fifth Avenue Hotel while his wife returned home to Monroe, Michigan to nurse her dying father.
