Pair of War-date Confederate soldier Autograph Letters Signed, includes: ALS by Junius Woodward, 2pp. quarto, Petersburg, Virginia, November 29, 1863, and reads in part: “...Harry, Jim and myself go all over the country in search of wild fruit. We get any quantity of grapes and persimmons. The farmers around our present camp are the most hospitable I ever saw. They give a soldier anything they can possibly spare and they always insist upon you taking a meal with them whenever you pay a visit. Before we came near Petersburg I always found the farmers close and stingy. They charged a soldier two or three dollars for his dinner, besides asking the most absorbant price for anything you might chance to buy. General Pickett whose headquarters are in Petersburg has received marching orders. I suppose he will go to Lee. I suppose that the number of deserters decreased amazingly since the unhappy end of a few of their friends...” Fine condition...plus; War-date ALS by Samuel A. Swanson, 38th Virginia Infantry, KIA at Seven Pines, 2pp. octavo, Camp Edmonds, Virginia, January 22, 1862, and reads in part: “...I am still enjoying good health...Oliver and Dock are both convalescent. Oliver is going about although looking thin. Dock is doing very well with the exception of pain in his feet...They have joined an artillery company for the war...” Very good condition.
