Lot 29: ANS as president signed "A. Lincoln," one page, 3.25 x 2, no date. A note to the secretary of state. In full: "These ladies say they live in New Orleans; have just returned from Europe, and wish to go home—Please see them." Scattered soiling, otherwise fine condition. An interesting note regarding two homeward-bound southerners, hoping to reach their destination with the war raging throughout the nation and the strong Union blockade of New Orleans.
