As to my "name" being used or made public, I care nothing about that, I do not write anything, but what I believe to be true, and do not intend to do injustice to any one.

In relation to Mrs. A. [1] I have not seen her since your letter was received — will make the inquiry on first sight, but I think and believe it true, that her first application to Mr. L. was a letter written to him, for her, by me at my store. I have written for her several letters to Mr. L. on that subject of her sons misfortune and also since the war, to obtain a discharge from the Army.

Yours truly
A. D. Wright.
