Lot 258: Ink signature, "Geronimo," on an off-white 3.25 x 5 lightly-lined sheet also signed by the last Chiricahua chief, "Christian Naiche," and the interpreter and leader of the Ndendai group of the Chiricahua band, "Asa Daklugie, Later elected Chief Fort Sill, Oklahoma." Lieutenant George Albert Purington of the 8th Infantry, who was in charge of Geronimo and his fellow prisoners at Fort Sill, also signs below Geronimo's signature as a witness. Attractively suede-matted and framed with an unattributed pencil sketch of the great Apache warrior to an overall size of 17.5 x 21.75. In fine condition, with a stray ink mark affecting one letter of Geronimo's signature and unobtrusive tears to the upper right. Originates from an autograph book belonging to Clara Schofield, the daughter of General John Schofield. A fantastic, well-documented autograph of the Western legend along with the unusual addition of his two compatriots.
