Description                           Estimate: $400+          

ALS signed “W. T. Sherman, General,” one page both sides, 5 x 8, Headquarters Army of the United States letterhead, April 22, 1876. Letter regarding a dinner being arranged by financier J. Pierpont Morgan, Elliot C. Cowden, and others. In part: “Since receiving your kind invitation to the Annual Banquet of the Chamber of Commerce at Delmonico’s May 4, I have been to St. Louis and Chicago which will explain the cause of my silence. I appreciate the honor of the invitation, but owing to the many calls by the Centennial of Philadelphia all in May, I fear I will not be able to be present at New York on the 4th.” Beautifully cloth-matted and framed with an engraved portrait and plaque to an overall size of 21 x 23.5, with a window in the backing so that the reverse can be seen. At the Chamber of Commerce dinner, Morgan and Cowden were unanimously elected as chairmen of the Finance & Currency and Executive Committees, respectively, for the following year. Oversized. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
