    Inscribed CDV of Hispanic Cowboy, 1881. Rare and wonderful full-length image of a whiskered Hispanic cowboy, posed in a studio setting with his holster and gun prominently displayed. Photographed by J. Pacheco. Delicately calligraphed note on verso reads: "A mi querida esposa, recuerdo de cariño. Jorge Foreman. Traje de Ranchero. Cañada de Negros, 5 Enero de 1881." Foreman reminds his wife of his love for her, while he works on a ranch in Guanajuato, Mexico. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Moderately age toned with moderate wear at corners and edges; pinhole at upper center. Very good.

    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.
