Justice Frank J. and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, dated November 3, 1865, is written from Peleg Clarke Jr. to Montgomery C. Meigs in which Clarke disputes the U. S. Government's evidence that claims that Clarke had a contract with the Rebels and are thus denying Clarke's claims for payment of lumber and corn received by the U. S. Army. Clarke goes on to ask for an opportunity to clear up the matter.
