Dr

I understand that you intend writing a History of Your Campaigns of the late War. I write you requesting the Agency of your book as soon as it is ready for this State, Kentucky. & as many others as you choose to give me. Reference given if desired I have been selling Pollards History of the War for some time having built up a trade for those Books. I feel confident that I can influence a larger trade for your book than any other one else in the State. Hoping that you will give this your earliest attention I am Sir

Your Obedient etc

W. Scott Glore

P.S. If not asking too much I would like your Photograph & Autograph also
