Lot 0160 Details

Description
Jefferson Davis. 5" x 8" autograph letter signed with initials "J.D." in the postscript, two pages front and back, April 10, 1877, to "7th Army Corps, Commanding General." "...General Wolff...instructs me to have the honor to write to you in reply to your letter...he has read with the greatest interest the details that you have given him about your family and yourself. I cannot unfortunately give you a favorable response on the subject of the family relationship which may exist between him and any of the Wolff, which is the subject of inquiry in your letter. None of the members of his family originally of Burgundy did in fact serve under the first empire, equally none of his name has ever lived in Paris...." Davis' postscript adds: "Doubting whether I have discyphered the signature of the acting officer, and having made a full translation to bring the letter into English useage...." Some spotting; separation in one fold.
