ALS signed twice, “Jno. S. Mosby,” one page, 8.25 x 10.75, Southern Pacific Company letterhead, January 10, 1893. Letter to "Dear Chinn," in full: "I have just mailed to Alice a novel—Quo Vadis—which is having a great run—it is after the style of Ben Hur. After she reads it I want her to lend it to Kate Critcher. I take a great pleasure in directing the reading of my favorite girls. In Jan'y 1895—at the time of our re-union Johnnie Beckham got me a transcript from the ledger of Ubler & Co. (I think that was the name) of some remarks (written down at the time) which were made by Colonel Robert E. Lee when he paid a small bill. It was just at the time when Virginia seceded. I lost it. Now I want you to copy it literally for me—give date &c. I have not received a line from Alexa since I left." In fine condition. A fantastic letter by the legendary Confederate ranger.
