Buffalo Bill Autograph
Autograph letter signed, one page, 8,5 x 11 inch, on his gold imprinted `Buffalo Bill`s - Wild West` letterhead, New Haven, 21.05.(no year - probably 1907), to Mr. McCadden (one of Cody`s show managers) - concerning recent events at show including attendance, copyrighting a battle and stuff issues, written and signed in black ink "W. F. Cody", attractively mounted (removable) for fine display with a photograph, shows Buffalo Bill in a beautiful Western portrait (altogether 19 x 12,75 inch), with filing punch holes at the upper edge and small staple holes at the upper left corner - in fine to very fine condition. In parts: "Dear Mr. McCadden, We managed to get open...It was so cold...that I feared we would have a light house, but we turned them away...It would be awful if all our canvassmen quit, and we do need some shers. Did you find out if we could in any way protect Our Summit Springs Battle by Copyright?" On the verso Cody has penned a postscript "A lot of our people are leaving us because there is no place to sleep. This is important. I don`t mean the performers but others."
