Title: Letter signed Edward A. Lewis, St. Charles, to Messrs. Gray and Blanding, St. Louis, June 11, 1863

Description:

Regarding his deposition for the Milton B. Bransford trial.



Transcription: St. Charles, June 11th 1863.

Messrs. Gray & Blanding — St. Louis.

Dr Sirs — I am still unable to leave the house, but hope to be well enough to see you in a few days. Will you please ascertain from the proper authorities what form of deposition will suit them — whether notice [etc]. must be given, as in civil practice, or whether mere affidavits will do. I fear my health will not permit me to go to Richmond, as I would otherwise gladly do. If you will send instructions by my son, who hands you this, I will write at once. Please let my son make copies for me of the two oaths which were sent down. “An act to prevent treasonable correspondence” was approved Feb. 25th 1863, as appears by a reference to it in military commission proceedings reported in the Republican of the 8th inst. See some important suggestions there in same connection.

Truly yours,

Edward. A. Lewis.
