Lot 333: ALS signed "Joshua L. Chamberlain," two pages, lightly-lined on two adjoining sheets, 5.75 x 9, November 18, 1899. Letter to Judge Whitehouse, in part: "I do not know what I can say to you on receiving your letter of this morning…I feel that it does not matter so much now whether I receive any office or not; for the true prizes of life and the lasting reward of any possible well-being are in such recognition and friendship as are witnessed by your generous letters, and ensured by what I know of the hearts beneath them." In fine condition, with partial separations to fold and trivial tears and paper loss to top edge. Accompanied by an unsigned glossy photo of Chamberlain in uniform.
