This is a very nice piece of Confederate history from the state of Mississippi. This is an original rice paper letter from William H. Brown who served as the Quartermaster General for the Army of the state of Mississippi at the outbreak of the Civil War. These then and fragile documents are written on rice paper which feels about half as thin as a standard sheet of paper. Because they are so thin, the documents become much more legible with a colored background. These would have been copies that Brown kept of official letters that he wrote in his position as Quartermaster General of Mississippi. The document is written in Brown ink and as you can see the acid in the ink has worn through some places in the rice paper. It was written from the headquarters of the Army of Mississippi Adjutant and Inspector General Office in Jackson, Mississippi on August 22, 1861. The letter was written to a Captain in Oak Hill, Mississippi. It states that in order to be elected to an officer position the man must receive a majority of 48 votes from his company. It states that the 2nd Lieut. only had 23 votes. The document itself measures 8 inches by 7 inches in overall size. This is a good looking original document from Confederate Mississippi.
