Buffalo Bill's Remington Revolver

                           


“To Charlie & Carrie Trego. This old Remington revolver. I carried and used for many years in Indian Wars and Buffalo killing. And it never failed me. WF Cody Dec 13th 1906.” 

Cody wrote this note to his friends Charles and Carrie Trego, foreman of his Nebraska ranch, when he gave them the gun for Christmas in 1906.







The message was written on William Cody’s personal business card, in his position as judge advocate general of Wyoming.
