Frank and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, dated September 16, 1881, is written from Philip Sheridan to someone addressed as Cist as a response to a previous request by Cist to explain that he does not do public speeches and would need to be excused from the program. The letter was found tipped into pages 152-153 of volume nine of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
