Gettysburg Pa. October 24/63
Two days ago, I mailed to your address a small volume entitled, "Notes on the Rebel Invasion of Maryland & Pennsylvania, accompanied by a Map of the Battlefield." The notes were at first prepared for the private use of myself & family, but published at the earnest solicitation of many of my friends. The Map was constructed from actual measurements made by myself & son.
Pleace accept the volume as a token of the high regard, I entertain towards you personally & officially.
Your obedient Servant
