    John S. Mosby: A Substantial Autograph Letter Signed by the Famous Confederate "Grey Ghost".
    "Mosby's Raiders" were among the most celebrated Confederate units of the Civil War, and is autographic material is always in high demand. Offered here is an attractive single-page 1913 letter in Mosby's unmistakable bold hand. Writing to a friend he relates that "Henry Stuart called me about two weeks ago. I hope and expect he will be the next Governor of Virginia." (A relative of celebrated J.E.B. Stuart, he would be successfully elected). Much of the letter is reminiscing about old mutual friends, with a particular emphasis on pretty females with whom the writer was clearly enamored. A fine example of a sought-after ALS, 7.75" x 9.75".
