Sale 38 Lot 122

ROBERT E. LEE AND PIERRE G. T. BEAUREGARD Very rare pairing of autograph endorsements signed on a single 8" x 3 1/2" sheet piece, includes PIERRE G. T. BEAUREGARD who writes: " forwarded to Genl. Lee for his information. p.r.f.f. G. T. Beauregard", with the second endorsement beneath by ROBERT E. LEE reading: "Reply returned. R. E. Lee Genl.". Very good. At the time of his endorsement, Beauregard was dissatisfied with what he felt was a command subordinate to that of Gen. Jubal Early. However, at the request of Gen. W. H. T. Whiting, Beauregard remained at his post until September in order to re-inspect coastal defenses at Wilmington and Cape Fear.
Estimate $ 2,500-3,500
