Description: 1 page on blind-stamped stationery, 10 x 8 inches, Washington, April 28, 1858. Written by the Secretary of War, who later served as a Brigadier General for the Confederacy and was killed in action at Abingdon. In this letter, he secretly uses his position as President Buchanan's Secretary of War to transfer armaments to the South and dodges an offer to get his son into West Point, in part: "...I will add, that the appointments were made before the receipt of Mr. McAdoo's letter, and there was no refusal or acceptance, the application coming too late." Horizontal folds, paperclip stain in the top margin, smudge in the left margin, and a ghost impression of text from another letter. Very good(-) condition.

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.
