    Missouri Confederate Senator John B. Clark Autograph Letter Signed, one page, 8" x 10", Richmond, Virginia, January 8, 1862, to Jefferson Davis, Richmond, Virginia. The letter reads: "I received this morning the enclosed letter from Govr Jackson covering one to you. I will avail myself of the honor to call to see you in the morning." Lightly toned ruled blue paper. One stain, else very fine condition. John Clark of Fayette, Missouri here refers to Claiborne Jackson, Confederate governor of the hotly contested border state. Missouri - or at least some Missourians - declared for the Confederacy a scant two months before this letter was penned.
