Lot 229: ALS signed "Z. T. Fulmore" and "X. B. Saunders," one page, 8.5 x 11, Office of County Judge, Travis County letterhead, May 18, 1883. Letter to Huling Parker Robertson. Fulmore writes, in part: "This will introduce to you Genl H...who desires to procure an original document among your Pa's papers." Saunders writes below, in part: "If necessary I will join Judge Fulmore in saying...you will turn it over to Genl H." In very good condition, with partial separations to fragile intersecting folds, overall toning, and slight mirroring of ink. Fulmore was a lawyer and judge who had served in the Confederate Army before dedicating himself to furthering public education, especially for the deaf and blind. Saunders was a newspaperman who, despite his anti-secessionist views, also served in the Confederate Army and was later appointed as a judge. Provenance: The Robert Davis Collection.
