Description: 1 page, 10 x 8 inches, with a large watermark, Macon, Georgia, July 18, 1864. Rare war-date letter written within days of the evacuation of the Macon Arsenal, requesting that S.E. Jordan, a skillful and practical tanner with this arsenal, be exempted from being taken to the field because he had a contract with the Macon Arsenal. It is highly unlikely that Cuyler's request was processed as this is one of the last communications from the Macon Arsenal. Slight chipping on lower right margin; very good(-) condition.

Comments: Confederate officer who distinguished himself by frustrating Sherman's efforts to cut the "W' and "A" Railroad toward Atlanta.

Your beautifully wrapped package of books -- two copies of "Journal in the Night" -- arrived at my door this morning and made my day! A thousand thanks for the care you took, first to find them, and then to send them as you did, all done up with tissue paper to boot. It was like Christmas in June AND it was my first experience buying books on the Internet. All the best to you, and perhaps our paths will cross again. - Janet B.
