Confederate Major Frederick Childs War Date ALS

childs299PRICE…$195


Featured here is a very nice hand written letter, 1 pg. Quarto, measuring 8 X 10 inches. Written by Major Frederick L. Childs, commanding the Charleston Arsenal, to General Thomas Jordan who was the Chief of Staff for General Beauregard. Obviously Corporal Kaufman found out the work at the Arsenal must have been less life threatening and wanted to come back! Great content. Overall fine.

It reads:

General Thomas Jordan

Chief of Staff, Dept, S Ca. & Ga.

          General

          In reply to your communication of this date, I have the honor to state that I require the services of Corporal Jno. Kaufmann for repairing and cleaning arms, in which capacity he has for years been engaged at this Arsenal. He was in my employ until a few months since when he enlisted in the Army and now desires to return to the Arsenal. I need mechanics very much to perfrom the work expected from this Arsenal and when I find suitable men in the Army I must either have them of leave much important work undone.

                                                  Very Respy. Your Obo. Svt.

                                                            F.L. Childs

                                                  Major C.S.A. Comdg.
