Partly-printed DS , signed “G. A. Custer, Maj Genl,” two pages, one 9.75 x 11.75 and one 9.75 x 15.75, November 1865. Document headed at the top, “List of Quartermasters Stores, expended in the Public Service, at Indianola, Texas, under the direction of Captain Leander A. Poore, asst Quartermaster, in the month of November 1865.” A detailed list of the used articles and their applications follows including two different stores of coal for “Fuel for Steamer ‘Prince Albert,’” and “Fuel for Steamer ‘Mustang’ and ‘Santa Marta’ in Matagorda Bay,” Square lumber for “Boat-ways, Cattle pens, Wharf and Miscellaneous repairs,” locks and keys, chalk, lime, iron, leather, coal oil, and lamp wicks. Signed at the bottom of the second page by Custer. Very nicely double-cloth-matted and framed with a portrait of Custer and a small plaque to an overall size of 24.5 x 23.75. In fine condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, and a slight brush to signature.
