``Having . . . passed through the counties from Clinton west to Erie I fulfil my promise to write you.
``Whilst I anticipate our success on next Tuesday in this State our most reliable friends do not promise an increased vote in the counties mentioned. . . .''
``P.S. Will you not order the muster of Colonel [John H.] Stover of the 184th Reg P.V It is important and if he [Stanton] has any objections about him he can be disposed of after the election. . . .'' (DLC-RTL).
