My Dear Col Taylor:
Can you give me the names of the officers who sent General Pendleton to General Lee on the 8th of April to suggest a surrender of the Army.
Gen Long mentions a list of officers handed in by P[endleton] to Gen Lee but does not give the names; only mentions my name as not approving the matter.
Very Truly Yours
