My dear General.

I have learned incidentally that you were engaged in preparing a history of “the war,” but were embarrassed by the want of many official documents. I have quite a number of these, which I will take pleasure in placing at your disposal, and will gladly aid you in the endeavor to procure others that you may need.

I send you a general list of those in my possession – I remain yrs truly

M. Lovell
