You are bidding on a General Jonathan Mayhew Wainwright IV Autographed Letter. The person Norma Bingham is deceased. The information I have is from her surviving niece. What she remembers is that her Aunt wrote a letter to this General that purchased a horse of hers. The letter mentions a gray horse but the horse in the pictures is white, so I don't know for sure if that is the horse mentioned in the letter but the niece says that is Norma on the horse as a little girl and as a young adult. This is all I know about this letter. More research would probably have to be made. You will be getting the envelope, the letter, and the two pictures. I have not attempted to get this signature verified by a professional. I can not tell if this signature has been auto-penned if that was being done at that time by a secretary. I have compared signatures of others that has been sold at auctioned, and even though I am not a professional document examiner, it is similar. All I can verify is what has been told to me. I have darkened the scans a little so that it is more readable, I also scanned a close up of the signature. I have seen this generals signatures go for around 30-120$. Below I will post a brief history of this general. Thank you for looking into my auction and .

Things to consider before bidding
Use either the Ebay e-mail or my personal e-mail at to contact me.
USA bids only please, I want to get your item to you as fast as possible. International shipping makes this promise harder to keep so, for now, I won’t offer it.
If you have any questions, e-mail me before you bid. I check my e-mail at least twice a day. I will try to give you a timely response, but I do work, so sometimes I might not be able to get back to you until the next day.
I do online research for every item that I list. I describe the item as best I can. If there are any misinterpretations, please remember that I am not an expert, and that I can make mistakes. If you are unhappy with the item you received, you have 7 days (from your date of receipt) to send it back. You pay the return shipping costs and I will refund the purchase price as soon as I receive the item. Please e-mail me first; we may be able to come to an agreement for a partial refund. If you have any information to give me about an item that I have listed please do. Your info will definitely be appreciated.
I only provide one picture to help save on my listing costs. Some listings will have more than one picture, but I will only do this if I need to show more detail than a single view provides.

I only ship USPS. If you want a USPS service that I do not offer, like express, e-mail me before paying so I can send you a new invoice. I try to get the best shipping price so it will be cheaper for you. The main reason I do not ship international, is because of theft, and lost packages. It is a real pain to deal with.

I will do combine shipping. Normally I will combine automatically. If you are going to buy more items, e-mail me and i'll delay sending the invoice, until those items are bought (up to one week).
