Antique 1867 “U. S. Grant” Signed Personal Cigar Letter Civil War General

...... If you know anything about General Ulysses S. Grant, you know that he loved his cigars and whiskey. Tonight, we are listing an authentic hand written personal letter by General U. S. Grant that relates to his smokong habit. Written on a 9 7/8 by 8 inch piece of folded stationary with the letter head, “Head-Quarters Army of the United States” it reads, “Washington D. C. Jan. 16, 1867. Dear Sir: I have the pleasure of acknowledging receipt of a bundle of cigars which you have been kind enough to send me by the hands of Hon. Chas. O’Neill of PA. Please accept my thanks for this expression of remembrance, and beli?? me. Very Truly your obt.svt. U.S. Grant General.  To Robt. O’Neil Esq.1400 I. Penn. Square Phila.?”

...... This letter is attached to an envelope from Head-Quarters Army of the United States. This envelope is addressed to the same Robert O’Neil mentioned in the letter. We were surprised to find a second letter on the inside of the envelope. This is a letter from the honorable Charles O’Neil, who gave the cigars to Grant, to his uncle Robert O’Neil Esq. Charles O'Neill (1821-1893) was a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania during the American Civil War and Reconstruction. The second letter reads, “Washington D.C Jan 16, 1867. My Dear Uncle, This morning I handed the bundle of segars (sic) to General Grant with your respects. He accepted it with great pleasures and requested me to give you the enclosed letter in his own handwriting, thank you. He lit one of the segars just as I was leaving him and remarked that he knew he would enjoy the whole, as a highly flamed article suited him.” The rest of the letter is very difficult to read, but there is mention of Charles O’Neill’s aunt and also a statement that he is very busy, but well. This letter was written on the same day as the General's letter and is signed at the bottom, “I remain, very truly your affect. nephew  Chas. O’Neill.”   ... We are listing this authentic 1867 General Ulysses S. Grant signed letter and envelope along with the Honorable Charles O’Neill’s accompanying letter and they are without any reserve. We also guarantee their authenticity for as long as the high buyer needs to be totally satisfied.
