AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, TO M. WAKEMON, ESQR., FORTIETH CONGRESS, U.S., WASHINGTON D.C. DECEMBER 14TH, 1867: M. WAKEMAN, ESQR.| SOUTHPORT CONN.| DEAR SIR, YOUR LETTER OF THE 28TH. ULT. WAS DULY RECD.| I BEG YOUR PARDON FOR NOT HAVING SENT YOU A COPY OF MY PHOTOGRAPH IN RESPONSE TO YOUR FORMER POLITE NOTES. THE TRUTH IS THAT I HAVE NOT HAD ONE SINCE YOU WROTE TO ME REQUESTING A COPY. I CAN ONLY NOW PROMISE YOU THAT DURING THE WINTER I WILL SIT FOR SOME PHOTOGRAPHER AND SEND YOU A COPY OF THE RESULT.| I AM GREATLY OBLIGED TO YOU FOR YOUR KIND EXPRESSIONS OF REGARD; AND I DO NOT THINK WE WOULD QUARREL MUCH OVER OPINIONS RELATIVE TO THE PRESIDENT. IF YOU HAVE LESS REGARD FOR HIM THAN I HAVE, THEN, GOD HELP HIM IF THERE ARE MORE LIKE YOU; FOR I THINK MY REGARD AND OPINION OF HIM WOULD CERTAINLY UTTERLY DISGUST HIM IF HE WAS INFORMED OF THEM, AND I DOUBT NOT HE UNDERSTANDS A GOOD DEAL ABOUT IT, THOUGH I HAVE NOT SEEN HIM FOR TWO YEARS.| YOURS TRULY, JAM. F. WILSON
