Monticello May 30 1868


Gen. J. Patton Anderson
Dr Sir,
I have at last finished the Catalogue but I must confess that I am ashamed to send
you these blotted sheets but I beg you to excuse me for doing so as I am compelled to
make it out almost (unassisted) at night, being engaged during the day at the store. I
think the catalogue is correct but you know how liable one is to make mistakes in making
out so long a list, especially when unassisted. I have cleaned up all your library & those I
do not intend to use have been carefully packed away (also a lot of papers.) The books I
intend to use have been carefully catalogued & as our rules are very strict, none can be
lost. The weather is exceedingly dry here now and crops are suffering a little. Thinking
that you have not heard how notorious our little town is becoming for exciting events I
send you an account of them, taken from the "Savannah News & Herald." I am happy to
say that all are recovering.
I am most respectfully
Yr. Obt. Svt.,
Geo. D. Morris
