About This Item

Fort Clark, Texas, 1938. Fort Clark, Texas: July 29, 1938.

Typed letter signed "G.S. Patton, Jr." to "Morry" [Luxenberg] a friend and military uniform supplier. This letter is anticipating his general's stars just days after becoming a colonel. Patton was promoted to colonel on July 24, 1938, and given command of the 5th Cavalry at Fort Clark, Texas, and this letter was written on the 29th of July. Letter on single sheet stationary headed "Fifth Calvary/ Fort Clarkm Texas," (7 3/16 x 6 15/16 inches; 183 x 177 mm). Typed on recto only. Letter dated "July 29, 1938." Letter reads:

"Dear Morry;/ Thanks a lot for the Eagles and for the good/ wishes about the stars which I hope will also come/ true./ If you plan to come to Clark you had better write/ the adjutant and ask him how many prospects there will/ be you see this is a pretty small place. I cant make/ inquiries for you as it would not look right./ With renewed thanks, I am/ Truly yours/ G S Patton [autograph]/ G. S. Patton Jr./ Col. 5th Cav."

[With] Black and white photo of Patton signed "G S Patton" at the bottom edges.

Letter is backed and some glue residue showing through. Two hole punches at the top with sticker reinforcements. "Patton" written in blue crayon at top edge. A few words underlined in blue ink. One light folding crease and a few staple holes at tope. Very good. Photo very good also.

"Morry Luxenberg, a tailor who specialized in military uniforms... In his calling Mr. Luxenberg became acquainted with many of the nation's military leaders. The 'Wall of Fame' in the office of his shop... was covered from floor to ceiling with autographed photographs and letters from high-ranking officers. Generals of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, and George C. Marshall, and Generals Jonathan M. Wainwright, George S. Patton Jr. and Leslie J. McNair were among his customers." (New York Times Obituary).
