Autograph Letter Signed

Appleton, WI: 1863.

Fine content A.L.S. 4to., 2 pages, Appleton, WI, January 27, 1863, providing news of troop movements and the firing and replacement of several Generals, in part: "...I suppose Rosecrans Army is at Murfreesboro yet. You see they cashiered and dismissed Porter. They ought to do the same with Buell or shoot him. When such traitors are out of the Army, we shall do better. I believe Rosecrans to be a true good officer. I understand he has dismissed a many good officers and I hope he will continue to do so until the last sympathizers are out of the Army. It is reported that Burnside has resigned and Hooker has taken his place. Hooker is not ably as good an officer as Burnside, but it seems bad to be changing Commanders so much. Matters do not look encouraging yet I believe we shall succeed by and by..." Condition: weak folds with minor fraying at the top margin that affects parts of two letters. Overall very good.
