Description  

Confederate general (1832–1904) who surrendered Lee’s army to Union General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain at Appomattox Courthouse. After the war, he served as a senator from Georgia, as well as the state’s 53rd governor. ALS signed “J. B. Gordon,” one page, 7.5 x 9.5, July 12, 1899. Letter to A. S. Hewitt. In full: “In my recent letter to you announcing the fact that I would be compelled to surrender the suburban property pledges as security for the bonds taken by you, I failed to state that in any event I should still recognize my obligation to discharge my indebtedness to you. Notwithstanding my ill health, & the loss of my home by fire & the other misfortunes which have befallen me, I wish to assure you that you shall be repaid every dollar you have loaned me, with interest.” Double-matted and framed with a portrait of Gordon to an overall size of 22 x 15.5. In fine condition, with central horizontal and vertical folds, and a couple of small notations to top left. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
