ULYSSES GRANT, COMMANDING GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES ARMY, LOSES A TWENTY-FIVE-DOLLAR CHECK. After leading the Union Army to victory in the American Civil War, Grant became the Eighteenth President of the United States. An autograph letter signed U. Grant as Commanding General of the U. Grant asks for a lost check to be reissued. Dear Sir: Some weeks or so since I received your check for twenty-five dollars and seven cents, bring amount overpaid by me when settling my last bill, which I have either mislaid or lost. It is barely possible that I may have endorsed the check, which was made payable to my order, so that it can be collected by anyone into whose hands it may fall. Grant would become President the following year. The letter is in very good condition with some ink bleeding through onto the first page. As this short missive shows, even the most extraordinary historical figures occasionally made simple mistakes.
