Lewis Rice & Son


Boston June 17th 1879

My Dear General

Yours of 13th inst. just reached me here, where I am for a few days. I have no knowledge of the affair in question and McG never alluded to it in my presence. I seldom ever met him in the field, hence his not having told me, is no proof that he did not tell others.

I think I can find Dow, and it is barely possible (Majo--Crossed out) Genl. Charles Hamlin of Bangor/ who was at the time a Major & AG, and on Humphrey’s staff mey know something of it, as he and McG were intimate. Shall see him next ?.

Genl H.J. Hunt anything I can do to help you out, will cheerfully be done. I think Dow is here, and shall try to see him tomorrow. Don’t some of Genl. Tylers Staff know about it?


Yours Very Truly

James A Hall
