Justice Frank J. and Virginia Williams
This handwritten, dated July 17, 1861, is written from LeRoy Pope Walker, Confederate Secretary of War, to George W. Johnson in response to a proposition Johnson had initially sent to Confederate President Davis regarding recruitment of a regiment for the Confederate Service. Walker goes on to inform Johnson that no transportation will be provided through Kentucky and that should the regiment be successful in purchasing arms, the government will take them at their value. The letter is written on Confederate States of America War Department letterhead.
