This is a picture of the gun with the letter. It shipped to Joseph J. Hughes in 1913. The family said he was a sheriff in a south-central Georgia county for some time, but I don't know which one. At least I didn't get a shipped-to-a-hardware-store letter with it. The gun is very photogenic for some reason. It cost me $250, and that was a whole lot of money back then. It came to me through a friend of a friend of the family. I was a Dean at the college that year so I guess people thought I had the money. . .it was still a scrape for me to find it and I don't think I told my wife.
