AUGUSTUS H. GARLAND
Letter written by the Confederate senator in black ink
Signature: "A H Garland", in black ink, 2¼p, 15¼x9¾ unfolded 7¾x9¾ folded in half. Washington D.C., 1891 April 8. To “Dear Mr. Edwards”. In part: “…please pardon me for this intrusion, but I must…” Handwriting difficult to decipher. Augustus Hill Garland (1832-1899), a member of both the Confederate House and Senate during the Civil War, was elected to the U.S. Senate from Arkansas for the term beginning March 4, 1867, but was not permitted to take his seat as Arkansas had not yet been readmitted to representation. After serving as Governor of Arkansas (1874-1876), he was again elected U.S. Senator from 1877 until 1885, when he resigned to become President Grover Cleveland's Attorney General (1885-1889). Lightly toned. Several vertical and horizontal folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
