#6065 - Cyrus McCormick Autograph Letter Signed Estimate: $1,000+

Inventor and businessman (1809-1884) whose reaper revolutionized American agriculture. ALS signed “C. H. McCormick,” two pages both sides, 5.25 x 7.75, monogrammed personal letterhead, October 6, 1861. Letter to a reverend, in part: "I rec'd yesterday letters…advising me of the call to you made by the North Church of Chicago, and that it had been forwarded to you 'with a request to please it to be laid before his (your) Presbytery' &c. After being also advised that you had been requested to visit Chicago in the mean time, Judge S. asks me—'Can you not attend its Presbytery's meeting and obtain its leave to place our call…in Dr. G's hands?' I write Judge S…that I do not think it will be in my power…to attend the meeting of your Presbytery…but that I expect to be in Washington again this week—at which time I shall hope to see you if there…and communicate with you upon the subject." In fine condition, with light soiling and overall silking on both sides.
