Platte City, Mo.
Sept. 27, 1872

Mrs. Anderson,
My dear Madam
I announced in the Missouri Republican the 25th the death of Genl.
Anderson.
This intelligence fills my heart with the deepest grief. I write you madam to offer
my sympathy in your great irreparable loss. However unworthy I may have been of the
oft repeated kindness of that soldierly gentleman, that honorable good man, I had them
and they have left in my heart the highest sense of gratitude and affection.
May you find consolation in reflecting upon his noble qualities, and his high
character, which was pure and without blemish, and his Roman courage which never
faltered.
May God in his infinite goodness comfort you and keep you and your children in
his constant care.
I am, madam, with perfect respect,
Your obedient servant,
Edward M. McDonald

A staff officer now also dead.
