Comments: "The earliest and probably the best book on the famous Mormon Battalion of the Mexican War, written by one of its members. The battalion was organized at Council Bluffs in June, 1846...and after its grueling march across the southern deserts was mustered out in San Diego in January, 1847. A complete list of the members of the battalion is given and every detail of the hard journey is told by Sergeant Tyler...Although the title-page bears the date 1881 the book was probably published in the latter part of 1882 since a list of surviving members of the battalion as of March 1882, in given on page 370." J. Gregg Layne, Zamorano 80. Flake 9063. Cowan p. 648. Howes T-447. Graff 4226.

Howdy and Happy Fourth of July. Just want to let you know that the Dick Grace book came. A nice copy, as promised. Grace was quite a fellow: the only person I ever heard of who crashed planes for a living and died of old age. I was in The Argosy once, years ago, 1997 or so. Hope to get in again one of these days, but NYC is a long way from here. Thanks again for helping me out with this. Best - Bob H.
