  • ["Pineville Nov 10. Dear Sir. Yrs. of 6. Inst. was received a day or two since. The circumstances under which, I came in possession of the certificate are these. Miller and myself left Warrenton for Culpepper Court House 2. Oct. with a Wagon train. That night where we stopt, there was an alarm that the Yankeys were coming. The Train left immediately- Miller had gone off to get supper, on our arrival at Culpepper (Miller not having come on) I took charge of his baggage and went on to Richmond, was there some time in the Hospital and have not seen Miller since the certificate was found in his Knapsack. I regret sending you, the certificate as their appears to be some doubt of its correctness from yr. letter. Yrs. very respectfully H. C. Palmer."]
190a. H.C. Palmer to James B. Heyward (?) -- November 10, 1862
Heyward and Ferguson families, 1806-1923
Letter from H.C. Palmer to (probably) James B. Heyward. Heyward had questioned the veracity of a letter that claimed his son's remains were disinterred from the battlefield at Manassas. This letter from Palmer apparently informs Heyward how he came in possession of the note concerning the claim and apologizes if the information was inaccurate. 1p. November 10, 1862.
