Letter to J. D. Corse
- 11th Nov. 1867
J. D. Corse, Esq.
My dear Sir,
Notwithstanding the reports of our arrangement by which I should be relieved of the necessity of going to Richmond, the fact is that nothing has been done to assure us of a trial or to remove the obligation of attendance.
When I leave here it will be my object to pass without delay to the end of the journey, it will not therefore be probable that I shall see you again before going.
Will you send me a statement of the investment with which you allowed me to trouble you, such a description as will suffice for any use.
Present my affectionate remembrance to Mrs. Corse, to Miss Smith and the children.
I am as ever very truly
- your friend
