Frank and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, dated December 12, 1865, is written from George G. Meade, a United States Army officer and civil engineer best known for decisively defeating Confederate General Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War, to A. M. Gayley. The letter is a thank you note for some items that were sent to him. There is some staining in the center of the page. This letter was found tipped into volume seven, between pages 262-263 of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
