Washington D.C.
April 25th 1876

Wm. Scott Esq.
Monticello, Fla.

Dear Sir,
I have your letter of the 13th inst., in regard to the appointment of young Anderson
to a cadetship at West Point.
It is enough for me to know that he is the son of my old & cherished friend (the
late Genl. J. Patton Anderson) to secure my most earnest efforts to procure for him the
appointment mentioned in your letter. If he lives in Mississippi, the nomination will have
to be made by the Representative from the District in which he lives. If his home is in
Jefferson Co. Fla., it will have to be made by the Representative of the 1st Dist. of that
state as the authority to make these nominations by any member of Congress, is limited
by law to the District which he represents. But in any event, I will do all in my power to
obtain the appointment for him. Please write me at once, and let me know where his
domicile is, and I will see his Representative, and do all in my power to get him the
appointment.
If Mrs. Anderson is in Jefferson Co., be pleased to give her my kindest regards
and best wishes. I loved & respected her late distinguished husband & will do any and
every thing in my power to serve his family.
Yours truly,
J.J. Finley
