Apologized for going but assumed would have been given a cold shoulder. He also makes some caustic observations on Jubal Early's comments about "turning Republican." (See "Letters of J. S. Mosby," pp. 64-65.) 3 pp. Marks: "No. 26" but crossed out to say "No. 9;" no year is given in original writing but is penciled in "1890."
