    ARMED FORT NIOBRARA, NEB. SOLDIER WITH RIFLE, PISTOLS AND BOWIE KNIFE - CABINET CARD ca. 1890-95
    This soldier is identified on the reverse in period ink as, "Jarvis the Tough", and has two pistols, his Springfield rifle, and a Model 1880 Calvary Bowie knife to back up the claim. The cabinet card is gold-rimmed and marked by E. O. Bloom, who is listed as being active in Valentine, Nebraska, a small town just South of Fort Niobrara in 1893. The outdoor image has excellent contrast and tonality, the man's face is very clear. The card measures 6.5"x 4.25. This is a top example of an armed Indian Wars-era Soldier.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
