204. John T. Harris to William H. Herndon [1].

Harrisburg Va. July 19, 1866.

Dear Sir:

Your last letter is to hand.

I have found much difficulty in getting the facts you desire, in such form that I would be willing to see them go into history. Every fellow has his tale, and all just exactly correct, but I have not been able to sift them so as to justify me in giving them to you. Our court sits today and will continue for two weeks; after which I will write you the best I can on the subject.

My regards to Mr. Shutt.

Yours Truly
John T. Harris.
