    Charles Guiteau: Three Letters Sent to Him in Prison, Together with Six Postcards and Envelopes Addressed to Him. The letters, one 3 pages, two basically asking if he is prepared as he faces death to own up to what he has done and embrace God's mercy: "...the blood of the Lamb of God (has the power) to save Even You-Go to Him-Now-'May God have Mercy on your soul,'" etc.

    A great hate letter to the jailer was sent to accompany a 3-cent coin which the writer "could not pass" and so is bestowing on Guiteau. "I only wish that I could have been on the jury. I would have had his scalp long before this and that third class shister [sic] lawyer also for trying to defend such a brute as he Guiteau is, and I hope he will have his swing in May for if ever a villain ought to swing...."

    Amazing artifacts such as we have never encountered before!
