(1826 - 1885) Union major general and general-in-chief of the army whose hesitation in attacking Confederate forces caused him to be sacked by Lincoln. A.L.S. 2pp. sm. 4to., Vienna, July 4, 1868, to Edward Edwards in Nice, in part: "...I have this moment written to Madame Santi - of the Hotel Royal - telling her that we expect to reach Nice after the 22nd of this month, & asking if we can have rooms about that time. Will you be kind enough to ask her what she can do for us, & if she cannot, will you kindly see if we can get some at some other good Hotel provided it is not that new one - which I should think would be too damp. Madame Santi will write to me...Please send a line to care of 'Blumenthal...Venice' - We are very tired of German winters & long for the Mediterranean & light once more...". With the original holograph envelope, very good condition.
