Confederate Soldiers Letter with Nice Postally Used Stamped Cover – B. E. Scarborough, 31st North Carolina Infantry – “You must not let the Yankees get you if they do make a raid in N.C. for I don’t want villains to get any of the ladies of my acquaintances”
This letter has a lot going for it. It is written on blue stationery from a Confederate ledger. It is in easy to read ink. It has a great I.D. with full signature, Bartlett died of wounds he suffered at Drewry’s Bluff, Virginia, and best of all it has its original Confederate “brown paper bag” type of envelope with a fine 10 cent Jeff Davis stamp and Charleston postmark.

Bartlett Scarborough of Company H of the 31st North Carolina is very concerned about the Yankee invasion into his home state of North Carolina. He is writing from James Island, next to Charleston, S.C. on September 12th, 1863. The letter is 4 pages. Bartlett signs it, “I remain your sincere friend till death…” and he received his mortal wound the following year.
