Autograph Letter Signed

Autograph letter signed dated 10/25/1886 written from Reading, PA to Mr. Isaac R. Pennypacker Editor of the Weekly Press.

In full:

Dear Sir,

I regret that I can not comply with your polite request that I should write an article on a war subject  for publication in your paper.  I have tried to get together material enough to make a tolerably fair description of a particular Cavalry engagement, but I find the recollections of others who were prominently engaged are not more distinct than my own.  I must be compelled to fall back on my official report which is so brief and general as to be of but little service I wish I could add anything of interest to what has already been published about the war, but I am sure I can not, and must therefore decline the attempt

Very truly yours D. M. M. Gregg"

Slight foxing Conservation framed with period engraving.
