Jacobs Letter to Hodsdon Regarding Jones

Philadelphia July 7/64
General

I am requested by Major Jas P. Jones to forward you the enclosed Carte de Visite which he left in the hands of Hendreth & Taylor on leaving for the front last week – the likeness is truly excellent.

Heaven give my dear old State many & many a brave heart to guard her – but she can send forth few truer more unassuming & yet braver men than the noble fellow for whom I gladly perform this little duty.

With much respect
I have the honor to remain
Very sincerely yours
J.W. Jacob
(Formerly of China Me)

To Adj’t Gen Hodsdon
Augusta
Me.
