Ulysses S. Grant writes an intimate letter.  Grant needs photos of himself to share–probably a constant in his life after gaining fame.

In full: “Look in my desk and find to (sic- two) of my photographs and send them by an orderly to Miss Botts. You will find them in a pidgin hole on right hand side of the desk.”

A horizontal tear across the top quarter has been repaired, and the middle vertical fold strengthened. Still a wonderful example of Grant behind the scenes.

Grant, Ulysses S. Autograph Letter, signed “U. S. Grant / Lt. Gen.” Hd. Qrs., Army of the Potomac (letterhead) “Gen. Grants Hd Qrs.” (in his hand): 29 April 1864. 8vo.; 1p. To Col. T. S. Bowers (known as “Joe” who was with Grant since April 1862). 8vo.; 1p.
