WINFIELD SCOTT HANCOCK
His handwritten letter concerning medical bills for his mother-in-law
Autograph Letter signed: "Winfield Scott Hancock", 1 page, 5½x8¾. St Paul, Minnesota, 1871 March 25. To Paine, Keferstein & Haydel, St Louis, Missouri, in full: "I send you two bills due to Dr. H. C. Stankloff, of Commander S. S. [?], by Mrs. Adaline Russell. As follows: $175.00/57.75 = $232.75. I bill on order of Dr. Stankloff as qualified for the above payable after April 1st next. I am truly yours". Winfield Scott Hancock (1824-1886), a highly successful Union Corps commander during the Civil War and a hero of the Battle of Gettysburg (1863), was the Democratic Party's candidate for President in 1880, losing very narrowly to James A. Garfield by a margin of fewer than 40,000 votes out of 9 million cast. (The Electoral Vote margin was wider, but far from a landslide: 214-155.) Hancock was Commanding General of the U.S. Army's Department of the East, headquartered on Governor's Island, from 1877 until his death. Adaline Russell was the mother of Winfield Hancock's wife Almira. One vertical fold. Lightly frayed at left edge. Slightly creased. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
