    William F. Cody Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 5.75" x 8.75", on The Hoffman House letterhead, New York, NY, February 2, 1895. Addressed to "Dear Ferrell," Buffalo Bill extends an invitation to a performance. In part: " I have a Theatrical Co. that will play at Miner's Theatre Wednesday Feb 7th. I will be there. Wish you and your family could come that evening, see the play, and we could have a chat. Would like to see you. I enclose a card. Very truly yours, W.F. Cody." At this time in his life, Cody was probably the most famous and recognizable man in the world, due to his wildly successful and popular Wild West Show tours through Europe. Penciled notation at bottom of page by C.M. Ferrell, who notes that he and his wife used Cody's card, presumably to obtain entry to the theater and access to Cody. Moderate age toning, soiling, and dampstaining. Folds reinforced. Small area of paper loss at left edge. Boldly penned and in very good condition.
