    William Tecumseh Sherman: A Family Letter re Life in New York Autograph Letter Signed ("W.T. Sherman"), 1 page, 5.5" by 9", Army Building, New York, February 2, 1888. To a kinsman, Sherman Moulton. With autograph envelope. In fine condition. Not only was war hell for Sherman, but marriage too: this letter uncharacteristically finds him referring happily to his wife, newly established back in New York. "...You can call on me always at any time --- but to increase the chances of your finding me in --- the 5th Avenue Hotel at 10 a.m., & this office at 11. Ellen [Mrs. Sherman] is now back & has Room 25 --- I am in 24 --- Lizzie [daughter] 23 --- 26 the Rushes --- Rachel [daughter] switched off a Philadelphia for Washington to return to New York about Feb. 15th --- Affectionately" From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
