1799 Sculptor John Bly's Statue For An American General

JOHN BLY, Early American Sculptor.

Autograph Letter Signed, "John Bly" in brown ink on fine laid paper, January 8, 1799, West Springfield, PA, 12" x 7", Extremely Fine. Bly writes to the Congressman General William Shepard regarding the request to create a statue in honor of Shepard's son. With the proper amount of stone, he needs the "proper instructions" in order to create the perfect statue. Wax remnants from original seal, minor ghosting; overall excellent condition with precise, bold script. A stunning document of an artist at work.
