Description


American Civil War financier and railroad magnate (1821–1905). ALS, one page, lightly-lined, 5.5 x 6.5, personal letterhead, June 19, 1880. Letter to Barney, in part: “I enclose a postal—please reply to it for me.” Handsomely double-matted and framed with a bust-length portrait of Cooke to an overall size of 17.5 x 12.75. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature) and a small indentation to the upper edge. Despite the 1873 collapse of the Jay Cooke & Company bank, Cooke would regain his wealth just seven years later through a lucrative silver mine investment in Utah. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
