    FREDERIC REMINGTON AUTOGRAPH LETTER ca. 1880'S - One page letter from famed artist Frederic Remington, Dated Aug 31 (circa 1880's), regarding repair work he wanted on his Winchester rifle. Remington writes to Major George E. Albee, who, following a very distinguished military career, served as an employee of Winchester Arms Company. Albee developed and promoted one of their famous model rifles and represented Winchester at promotional shooting Exhibitions. Letter read in full: "very nice of you. I will ship my gun and just put on the new sight and have it resighted-that's all- it suits me to a T. I am used to it and I can shoot it- I don't want a better gun than this one. I am having a heavy leather case made- so that is fixed. I want something that I can ship by Express and that is strong enough not to knock the sights. Yours truly Frederic Remington." 7"x 8.75".

    Condition: Beautifully penned in very fine condition.

    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.
