Legendary United States Army Officer and Brevet Major General GEORGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER very early and AUTHENTIC HANDWRITTEN AUTOGRAPH ENVELOPE entirely in Custer’s own hand while courting Elizabeth Bacon (Custer). Affectionately known as “Libbie”, Bacon would later marry the smitten Civil War Officer. A remarkable, early association piece.
Custer's distinctive "C" can be seen in the name "Colton". It's a prime example of the young Custer's early florid script - and the same penmanship on display in a well-respected auction house's recent sale of an early Custer letter from West Point (see photo reference for comparison). 10 words in Custer's own hand.
