    Rare Frederic Remington ALS with original full page Spanish- American War drawings. He writes to an unknown friend " My Dear Birdie...Old McKinley wobbles-he is a broken reed-but he and his d(amned) business interests have a Spanish war of two months-or socialistic democracy forever as a choice. The dollar darkens the vision of men...Yours truly, Frederic Remington." Page 3 of the foldover lettersheet is a drawing of Admiral Dewey and three other naval officers with Assistant Secretary of the naval officers with Assistant Secretary of the Navy Theodore Roosevelt, who is directing them to " Stay wid em". An unflattering caricature of the refined, highly educated and well-spoken Roosevelt. Folding into quarters for small envelope, small corner stains as shown, overall fine plus. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    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.
