Elmore, Esq., Treasurer C. S. A., Richmond, Va. Sir: Enclosed please find a fifty dollar Confederate note, which I desire to present to the Government, through you, for carrying on the war.

perty of a British subject, that the British Government would, at his instance, permit any of its vessels to bring over the same for him.

Respectfully, your obedient servant, C. G. Memminger, Secretary of the Treasury. Mr. Memminger to Messrs. Fraser, Trenholm &
