Desirable handwritten permission to pass across the Rapidan in 1864

Civil War–dated ADS, signed “J. E. B. Stuart, Major Gen’l Comd’g,” one page, 7.75 x 5, January 30, 1864. A scarce handwritten pass issued by Stuart. In full: “The pickets on the Rapidan will permit any member of Dr. Grinman’s family who presents this, to pass across the river & back till further orders.” Repaired separations to intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), overall mirroring to ink, and scattered soiling, otherwise very good condition. Within four months of writing this pass, the the Army of the Potomac would cross the Rapidan on May 4 en route to victory against Stuart at the Battle of Yellow Tavern on the 12th, during which the great Confederate cavalry commander was mortally wounded. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
