Gettysburg Nov. 2 1863

Sir,

As the Hotels in our town will be crowded and in confusion at the time referred to in the enclosed invitation, I write to invite you to stop with me. I hope you will feel it your duty to lay aside pressing business for a day to come on here to perform this last sad rite to our brave soldier dead on the 19th instant.

Governor Curtin and Hon Edward Everett will be my Guests at that time and if you come you will please join them at my house.

You will confer a favor if you advise me early of your intentions.

With great Respect

Your Obedient Servant

David Wills
