Our relations with the “war Records office” at Washington continue to be in the highest degree satisfactory. General Marcus J. Wright and Mr. A. P. Tasker have again visited our office — this time spending two weeks in a careful examination of our records; and two accomplished copyists have been at work for a month making for the War Department copies of important official documents which it needs to complete its files. These gentlemen were hard at work during the whole time they were with us, and were more than ever impressed with the extent and value of our collection. On the other hand, we have received from General Townsend, Colonel Scott, General Wright, Mr. Tasker, and, in fact, every one connected with the War Records office, every courtesy and facility which we could desire. We repeat again that our friends who have valuable documents ought to send them on at once. If you are not willing to give them, then by all means lend them to us, that copies may be made both for the Society and for the War Records office. We are hearing continually of the destruction (by fire and other causes) of valuable material which the owners intended to send us, and we beg that our friends will not run the risk of delay in forwarding what they have.
