    Ulysses S. Grant Civil War Letter as Major General, 1863 Autograph letter signed, "U. S. Grant Maj. Gen. U.S.A. Comdg.," 2 pages, 5.25" x 8", Chattanooga, November 2, 1863 to Captain M. R. W. Greber of the 4th Missouri Cavalry. Grant writes in full, "Your letter of the 30th of Sept. asking for my autograph to add to the collection of your father now has it only just rec'd. I give it to you freely and only regret that the delay in the mail may have already made it so late that this will not reach you before your departure for your foreign home. My best wishes will accompany you to the land of your fathers. I at the same time forbear expressing my thanks, through you, for the patriotic loyalty of our adopted citizens, your countrymen in this hour of trial. I believe also we have with us sympathy of your home government." In excellent condition and boldly signed. Beautifully matted with a portrait of Grant. A most desirable item. From the collection of Bradley O'Leary. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
