Wolfe purchases clothes for his upcoming—and final—trip west
Description  

Bank check, 6.25 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Wolfe, payable to Rogers Peet for $22.54, May 14, 1938. Wolfe’s notation at bottom reads, “Payment in full; four shirts and eyelet collars.” Uniform toning, expected cancellation holes, bank stamp over top of beginning of signature, and Wolfe’s writing a shade or two light, otherwise fine condition. Not long after writing this check, Wolfe embarked on a two-week tour of the western National Parks, then on to the Pacific Northwest, where he contracted severe pneumonia; complications arose and he was eventually diagnosed with miliary tuberculosis of the brain, causing his death in September. Wolfe is decidedly rare in any form, with this being only the third check we have offered. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
