William Walker Autograph Letter Signed "Wm. Walker", one page, 5" x 8.25", Granada, Nicaragua, March 14, 1856, to Domingo Goicouria, location unknown. It reads: "Enclosed is a letter for Mr. Soule which you can read and send with your letter if you please. I should be glad to see you to day in regard to the propellers." Minimal stains, light even aging and smoothed folds. Choice very fine condition. Pro-slavery American adventurer William Walker (1824-1860) was one of the more colorful characters produced by nineteenth century America. His vision focused on creating a Central American capitalist empire in which Anglo-Saxon white men were dominant. Given Nicaragua's importance to pre-canal trade, Walker seized the small country and was its self-declared president between 1856 and 1857. His questionable regime was even recognized by Washington for a short while! Here he writes to ally Domingo Goicouri, an early Cuban separatist, and mentions Louisiana politician Pierre Soule. Walker's schemes extended to Nicaragua's neighbors as well and he met an untimely end before a Honduran firing squad.
