An example

Here is one that sur­prised me. I thought the con­cept of a mon­um­net to Gen­eral Sam Gar­land at Fox’s Gap was a new idea. Evi­dently not.

Boons­boro P.O.
Wash­ing­ton Co. MD

June 16, 1897

Gen­eral E. A. Car­man of the Anti­etam Bat­tle­field Board & c.

Dear Sir,
Your favor of June 14 is received, wish­ing to know if I will give the gov­ern­ment per­mis­sion to erect on my prop­erty at Fox’s Gap a memo­r­ial of Gen­eral Gar­land, C.S.A. With thanks for your cour­tesy, I regret to have to say that I can never will­ingly con­sent that such marker be erected on prop­erty owned by me.
I am truly sorry,

Madeliene Vin­ton Dahlgren
