Woodbury, N. Jersey
Dec. 28, 1889

Dear Madam,
You very kindly wrote to me in July last relative to my request for a photograph
of Genl. J. Patton Anderson. I have tried to get one otherwise but failed and on your
letter you asked me to let you know if I did not succeed.
I have a fine collection of portraits, etc. of the Confederate Generals in my private
library and prize them very highly indeed & regret very much not having one of your
brave and chivalrous husband for so such I know, by the truths of history, that he was.
You speak of having two portraits of Genl. A., one in C.S.A. uniform & one taken
before the war & ask which (copy) I prefer and what size. I would prefer the best
likeness and cabinet size but use your pleasure in the matter.
Could you, from a letter, flyleaf of book, etc. cut me a signature of Genl.
Anderson to attach to the photograph. May I hear from you soon.
Very sincerely yrs,
B. Perry

Where, in what publication can I find a good biographical sketch of Genl. A.?
