LETTER SIGNED, TO HENRY D. WHITE, ESQ, WASHINGTON, JAN. 22, 1887: JAN. 22ND 1887. MY DEAR COUSIN I HAVE HAD SOME CORRESPONDENCE WITH A GENTLEMAN IN NEW YORK, WHO, I THINK, IS A FRIEND OF YOURS IN REGARD TO THE LIFE OF COL. ISAAC SHERMAN, WHICH HE IS PREPARING. I HAVE GIVEN HIM A GOOD DEAL OF MATERIAL. SINCE I WROTE TO HIM, I HAVE SEEN IN THE MAGAZINE OF AMERICAN HISTORY FOR AUGUST, 1886, AN ARTICLE ON THE NORTH WEST TERRITORY BY PRESIDENT ANDREWS OF MARIETTA. ON PAGE 144 HE QUOTES FROM A LETTER OF WASHINGTON TO LAFAYETTE IN WHICH WASHINGTON SPEAKS OF COL. SHERMAN AS A "MILITARY ACQUAINTANCE" OF LA FAYETTE AND SAYS THAT HE PROPOSES SETTLING IN THE OHIO COUNTRY... I AM, YOURS FAITHFULLY, GEO. F. HOAR [At head in type: SENATE CHAMBER WASHINGTON]
