    Description

    Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain Autograph Letter Signed "Joshua L. Chamberlain." Four pages, 5" x 8", Brunswick, Maine, August 2, 1895. In this letter, the recipient of the Medal of Honor for heroism at Gettysburg invites "Mr. Lawrence" on a yacht excursion to meet two New York art students. Toned paper with folds. Clearly written text and signature.

    In part: "So I feel like inviting you to spend a week with me here as my guest, as soon as you can get away. You will appreciate the fullness of nature here & I shall not allow you to think our hearts are any less full & free when we get you here. We are to have the yacht in Portland next Wednesday evening to meet the two you misses Edwards (Miss Lillian's nieces) who will come, we suppose, by the New York steamer leaving N.Y. Tuesday at 5 p.m."
