Description


Rare ALS signed “T. J. Jackson,” one page, 6.5 x 8.5, August 5, 1854. Written from Lexington, Virginia, a letter to his brother George, in full: "Please purchase N. Y. & E. R. R. stock with the inclosed check, so soon as the stock begins to rise or appears somewhat stationary in depreciating value; if such is not already the case. Many thanks for your kindness. Love from all of us to you both." In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds, chipping to the top edge, and writing showing through from a letter to Jackson on the reverse. Accompanied by an engraving bearing a preprinted signature. The railroad would fail in 1859—the first bankruptcy of a major American train line—and was then reorganized as the Eerie Railway in 1861. This company became the subject of the 'Erie War' of the 1860s, in which James Fisk, Jay Gould, and Cornelius Vanderbilt battled over control of the line. A rare and interesting piece of pre-Civil War railroad history.
