    Jeremy Francis Gilmer Letter Signed one page on imprinted official letterhead, 8" x 10". Richmond, Virginia; December 7, 1864. A letter to CSA Congressman William Porcher Miles acknowledging receipt of recommendations for "J. Fraser Mathews for an appointment in the Engineer service." Gilmer is unable to issue the appointment because "the number of appointments conferred on citizens of S. Ca. has already much exceeded the quota of the state." Signed, "J.F. Gilmer."
    Condition: With flattened folds and a few stray creases. Lightly toned, a bit darker at the edges. Body of letter is written in very fine ink, Gilmer's signature is large and bold by comparison.
