Lot 2609    

Confederacy, 1864 Brooklyn Fair Letter. Lengthy 4-page letter with interesting description of the Brooklyn Fair…The grand fair closed Saturday and they raised about $1,000,000. They have not done as well as Brooklyn after all, in proportion to their members. But it was splendid and though I was over but one day, I imagine there was enough to see to keep one busy for a week. The greatest excitement was the sword contest between McClellan and Grant. By paying one dollar anyone was entitled to a vote, for either Little Mac or U.S. Some gentlemen took 1,000 and some even more and the results was the Grant came our some 15,000 ahead. The sword brought over 44,000 to the Commission.; with original cover from Brooklyn (soiling and flaws), a Very Fine letter.
Estimate    $150 - 200.

Realized: $240
