Autograph letter signed to James Beale, New York, 26 January 1879, <I>4 pages, 8vo, tipped to a larger sheet</I>. ON THE FIRST DAY'S BATTLE AT GETTYSBURG: "...Meade, who, personally a brave man, was always timid as a general, had determined to fall back to Pipe Creek and fortify there. The order did not reach Howard until about 12 noon or 1 p.m. on the first and he then did not attempt to carry it out though he might have done so. I don't believe Meade ever said that if the enemy got Gettysburg he was lost, for he had already given orders for his whole army to get behind Pipe Creek & that was 12 miles in rear of Gettysburg...Had we fallen behind Pipe Creek, the enemy would have confronted us with one Corps and have taken Harrisburg & Phil. with the other two..." -- DAVIS, JEFFERSON, <I>President, C.S.A.</I> Autograph quotation signed, Beauvoir, Mississippi, 20 April 1883. <I>Oblong 4to, in purple ink, mounted on another sheet</I>.
