I shall, with your approval, transfer this old flag to the Governor of Alabama, who, like yourself, was a gallant soldier in the great war which has placed on record the fiercest battles ever fought.

With high respect and warmest wishes for your happiness and prosperity, I am

Sincerely yours,

Dabney H. Maury. To General L. W. Colby, Department of Justice.
