Includes original letter from soldier in "Prison No. 3" asking his father to have a Capt. Alberger "attend to my affairs with the Company".

    Estimate $400-$600

    Expertization: 1993 CSA Certificate declining opinion as to whether the stamp originated on the cover.

    The letter never entered the Confederate mails, so the C.S.A. stamp was unnecessary.
