JOHN POPE
Autograph Letter signed: "Jno. Pope", 1 page, 4½x7¾. On letterhead of Headquarters, Department of the Missouri. Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, 1879 July 13. To John P. Nicholson, Philadelphia. In full: "I am just in receipt of your note of the 4th inst. You have been misinformed in the matter to which you refer and I have as yet written nothing on the subject. When I do so, if I do I will very gladly furnish you with a copy. Very respectfully Yours." Pope fought with distinction at Monterrey and Buena Vista in the Mexican War. As Commander of the Army of the Mississippi in the Civil War, Pope captured New Madrid and took part in the move on Corinth. These successes in the West brought him the command of the newly organized Army of Virginia (June 1862), and he was named Brigadier General in the regular army. He was defeated by Lee at the Battle of Second Manassas, however, and transferred to Minnesota. He was promoted to major general in 1882 and retired in 1886. Stained on left and right sides, touching writing on left but not signature. Lightly soiled overall. Faint pencil erasure in blank area at lower left. ½" tear at upper left edge.
