I have also translated many interesting parts of your Life of Lee.

I have also published biographies of R. E. Lee, Jackson, Stuart and Mosby, besides my larger History of the War.

I do not mention these things to glorify my poor efforts to bring my friends out of their modest shade into the clear sunlight of truth, but I do wish to prove to my old gallant and noble comrades of the South that I have not been ungrateful to their country and her heroes, whom I admire so much. Your obedient servant,

I. Scheibert, Major.

We need not comment on the above letter further than to say that if we had done nothing else than to afford our noble friend the material which he has so well used, then our work has not been in vain, and we have the ground of another strong appeal to our friends to sustain us in its further prosecution.

Of course we have sent Major Scheibert duplicates of the numbers of our Papers which he failed to receive, and shall continue to mail them to him regularly.
