    Description

    Two Stephen Douglas Signatures, as follows: Autograph Letter Signed, "S. A. Douglas," one page, 5" x 8", New York City, July 4, 1860, to Fernando Wood, New York City. This is a request for a meeting in Douglas's room. Uneven left edge, very fine condition. Douglas, the Northern Democratic Presidential hopeful, was hot on the campaign trail when he wrote here to New York's notorious Civil War mayor. The second item is a clipped signature, "from S. A. Douglas," 3.25" x 1.25". Very fine condition. From the collection of Henry E. Luhrs.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
