    Nate Salsbury: Autograph Letter Signed, Buffalo Bills Manager. Excellent content letter, ALS, January 19, 1893, 8" x 10" Chicago, Illinois, fine. Salsbury writes the wife of Fletcher S. Bassett, who was a Naval Officer and helped establish the International Folk-Lorre Congress in 1893 for the World's Columbian Exposition, and founded the Chicago Folk Lorre Society. Salsbury is extending an invitation, reading in part "the management of "Buffalo Bills Wild West Company "Extend an invitation to the Folk Lore Congress" to attend one of our Entertainments as a body. The Congress will find much to interest them in our performance - incorporating as it does correct illustrations of the life and customs of various tribes of North American Indians - as well as foreign races of people. Yours faithfully Nate Salsbury Director B.B.W.W". A fantastic letter.
