    Description

    Jefferson Davis Autograph Letter Signed. 5" x 8", letterhead with original transmittal envelope, Memphis, October 16, 1874. In full, "Dear Sir, Your very kind letter inviting to attend the next annual fair in Oktibbeka County has been this day received. It would give me sincere pleasure to meet my friends of former days and to confer freely with them on the important subjects of direct trade and immigration. I have been looking to promote both of those objects, and though only parliamentary actions has thus far been taken, there is reason to hope for ultimate success. Business engagements unparticular call me in a different direction, I will probably occupy me so long as to render impossible for me to be with you on either of the days named by you. Please return my thanks to your appreciation for their gratifying consideration and remembrance of me. And believe me as even cordially your friend." Very fine.
