Letter from Edward Bates

Description

Note from Edward Bates, US Attorney General under Abraham Lincoln from 1861 to 1864. "Sir, Coming home, after an absence of six weeks, I find your letter of July 11. It is dated only at "Hartford" the poststamp, as usual, is illegible, so I direct this acknowledgement to Hartford of Connecticut, as the best city of the name that I know of." Respectfully, Edward Bates
