Scope & Content Letter from John S. Mosby to Dr. Aristides Monteiro, June 5, 1890

Physical Appearance: In this autographed letter signed, dated June 5, 1890 from Hotel Langham in San Francisco, Mosby asks Dr. Aristides Monteiro to send accounts of the Lee Monument dedication. Mosby writes that he sorry to have missed the event but glad to hear that his men turned out in great numbers. Says that the statue should have been placed in Capitol Square. Apologized for going but assumed would have been given a cold shoulder. He also makes some caustic observations on Jubal Early's comments about "turning Republican." (See "Letters of J. S. Mosby," pp. 64-65.) 3 pp. Marks: "No. 26" but crossed out to say "No. 9;" no year is given in original writing but is penciled in "1890."
