JEFFERSON “JEFF” DAVIS (1808-1889). American Statesman, President and Leader of the Confederacy during the American Civil War, serving as the CSA President for its entire history.
November 11, 1861-Dated Civil War Period, Historically Important Autograph Letter Signed, “Jeffn Davis,” as Provisional President of the Confederacy and President-elect of the Confederate States of America, 1 page, measuring 6.5” x 8.5”, Richmond, VA., Very Fine. Well written and easy to read in brown on period wove paper, light narrow white border trace at perimeter from a prior display. Exceedingly Rare. It reads, in full:

“Richmond, Va. -- Nov. 11, 1861. -- My dear Sir, --- Upon the receipt of information sent through Mr. [James] Williams that Mr. [William L.] Yancey desired to return, a letter was written to him which authorized him to do so. The application was for recall but the authority was so given as to leave the question of his remaining at home, open for future consideration and decision - It was sent long since and he may now be on his way home. Very respectfully, -- (Signed) Jeffn Davis.”
