My Dear Sir,
I desire to call your attention to my Gettysburg Publication, particularly the Government Topographical Map of that battle-field. The survey for this map was ordered by Gen. A.A Humphreys, Chief of Engineers U.S.A. and was made under the direction of Genl G.K. Warren U.S.A. Chief Engineer at the battle. It was commenced in 1868 by ? H. Chase, U.S. Engineers, and continued through a series of years by 1st Lieut ? T. Turtle, U.S. Engineers, 2nd Lieut F.H. Hinman, U.S. Engineers, and ? Engineers Capt. C.E.Davis, John Dager, Genl H.A. Frink, E.A. ? W.F.Hill and C.E. Morrison.
The maps were compiled and engraved in the contour lines under immediate direction of Gen. Warren. The Military Positions of troops ? compiled and added for the Government by me, and printed in ? giving, by name every Corps, division, brigade, regiment, and battery ? armies during six phases of the battle; connected by dotted lines and rows indicating the movements. These maps are pronounced at ? War Department more complete than any battle-maps heretofore published. They have been prepared at great expense, printed upon parchment paper ( a sample of which is herewith enclosed) and, as the ? has ordered but a limited edition, I would respectfully announce to any one desiring to procure them, that they are for ? ? me. Price $10 per set of three, one for each day. Or to any person ? $40, five sets will be sent free of charge. A singel ? of either day will be sent on the receipt of $4.00.
I am Sir Very truly Yours
