William J. Hardee
Autograph Letter Signed



Autograph Letter Signed dated 3/13/1854 from Washington to future General Stephen Vincent Benet. 

In full:

"Dear Benet I received your letter this morning.  I went to Col (Samuel) Cooper at once and told him you did not want to be detailed for service on the coast survey, he said he would inform the Secy., and felt since you would not be detailed, as it was the wish of those in charge of the business, not to have any officers detailed who were not willing to enter on the work.  I don't think Craig's opposition to you joining me has anything to do with this detail, as (?) you (?) of for this work a month or two ago.

In great haste,

Truly yours,

 W. J. Hardee"
