CIVIL WAR GENERAL AND AUTHOR JAMES GRANT WILSON WRITES ABOUT WILLIAM MAKEPEACE THACKERAY. Wilson, an author and soldier, was a colonel in the 4.
He fought in the Mississippi Valley and was eventually commissioned a brigadier general. He also wrote and edited numerous journals and books.
An autograph letter signed " Jas Grant Wilson " on "The American Ethnological Society" letterhead. Wilson wrote to "R W Johnston" : Yours of the first is just received.Please accept thanks for the cheque and find receipt enclosed. I was also disappointed to learn that so much of the supposed'Thackeray Treasure Trove', was not published. Drake return the various material together with proofs of such pictures as were copies for the paper? You might also return the manuscript as much of it was not, I believe, used in the magazine article.
The Thackeray photograph given to Bayard Taylor by Lady Ritchie, was reproduced in the Century for January 1902, p. 336 but did not appear in the Counhill for that month. Taylor in kindly lending me the original, gave me permission to use it any way I wished, so if you will supply them with a duplicate of the block, Smith, Elder & Co have my consent to use it in their magazine, or in Lady Ritchie's new edition of her father's writings.
Have your found a place in the Century for the war horses? If you expect to visit Edinburgh, I will be glad to give you a line to my friend Charles Chambers. He is the head of the house of W&R Chambers and Editor of the popular Journal.He goes to his Highland Estate for the August shooting, but is usually in Edinburgh in June and July. His library is among the finest in Scotland. The letter has very dark ink and is in very fine condition overall. A few marks by the recipient on the front, but the text is still readable.
