Annotation

[1]   ALS-P, ISLA. This note is written on both sides of a small card. On November 18, 1863, Anson G. Henry wrote to Lincoln, introducing Miller: ``This will be handed you by my good friend Genl. W. W. Miller of this place. He is a son of our old friend Major [William] Miller of Jacksonville. He is the best specimen of a Union Democrat of the Andy Johnson stamp, we have in this Territory, and I know you will like to make his acquaintance.'' (DLC-RTL).
