TLS as president, one page, 6.75 x 9, Executive Mansion letterhead, January 13, 1900. Letter to Colonel Thomas P. Ochiltree, in full: "I have been much gratified to receive a cordial invitation from the Confederate Veteran Camp of New York, to be present and respond to a toast at its Tenth Annual Banquet on the 19th instant. As intimated in my conversation with you recently, I find that engagements will prevent me from attending this Reunion. I have just written to Commander Owen, expressing regret at my inability to be present. Will you, however, be good enough to extend to the members of the Camp and their guests, my cordial good wishes. Trusting that the Reunion may be a most successful one." In very good to fine condition, with light soiling, and two extra horizontal folds. Ochiltree (1837-1902) served as a U.S. Representative from Texas from 1883 to 1885.
