Autograph Letter Signed. 8vo. 2 pages, Caledonia, Wisconsin, December 24th 1864, to A.B. Jackson, Registrar at Menasha, in part: "I received your letter enclosing one from Mr. Edwards stating, as I understood it, that there was some fraud about the warrant paid by my father James Wright for the West ½ of the South West Lot of Sec. 14. In reply I have to state that the said James Wright is now in the Government Service, at last accounts was at Duvall's Bluff, Arkansas. I will write at once to him but it is very doubtful if my letter reaches him as the mail to that place is very irregular. If it does not reach him he will give immediate attention to the subject when he returns in February - which is I think the best that can be done under the circumstances..." Three tiny stain marks at the top, otherwise in very good condition.
