This is a very nice piece of Confederate history from the state of Mississippi. This is an original multi page 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. This is likely two separate partial letters with the 1st being written phone September 9, 1861 to Major Davis who is the Assistant Adjutant General of the 1st brigade of the Army of Mississippi posted in Iuka, Mississippi. At the start of the letter he talks about a report from the Molino Rifles (23rd Mississippi Infantry ) and talks about the mustering of officers. The other letters talk about more official business including muster rolls and the paperwork used in the adjutant General’s Department. Each of the documents measure approximately 8 inches by 10-1/2inches in overall size. This is a good looking original document from Confederate Mississippi.
