    INTERESTING AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY BUFFALO BILL CODY. One-page letter on Sells-Floto Circus letterhead, penned while on the road with the Wild West Show to his ranch foreman in Wyoming. Cody has learned of possible trouble on the ranch, and writes to foreman Billy Goodfellow with his concerns. In part, "Have just heard that Guss & Johnny Thompson are going to run cattle with ours. I am anxious to hear what you think of it. Johnny Thompson...filled Blum plumb full about you. I think John thought if he could create a feeling against you he could get your place. I wrote Blum if he listened to all the knockers in Big Horn Basin, he would be kept busy... I am going to see that they don't deal you grief." Letter is handsomely matted, together with Cody's holograph transmittal envelope bearing a small half-tone bust likeness of Cody at upper left, with a printed return address for Cody's Historical Pictures Co. Archivally matted and framed to an overall size of 15½" x 23½" and in very fine condition. From The Chris Kortlander Collection
