ALS signed “Uncle Will,” one page, 8.5 x 11, colorful illustrated 'Buffalo Bill' and the 101 Ranch Shows letterhead, September 22, 1916. Handwritten letter to his niece, penned less than four months before his death, in part: "Pardon my neglect of you. I've thought of you every day, but neglected to write. This six months or more of a daily grind. I can't stand like I used to. I think we will close the season Nov. 4th. Then I go to Denver first to see May and Louie. Then out to Cody. Will is still with me. We will go to Denver together…Business only fair. I would like to know how you all are." Cody adds a brief postscript: "I'll send the painting when I get home." Matted to an overall size of 11 x 14. In fine condition, with light staining along the top edge, and slight brushing to the signature. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA.
