New Orleans, May 28/92 [1892]

Mr. H. A. McArdle


            Independence -Tex -

            Your favor of the 21st


inst & sketch were duly recd,


but could not be answered soo-


ner. It is difficult to say what


may have been the shape or plans


of the Mexican fortification,


which must have conformed


to the locality, as you seem to


have it. It was probably a "Sa-


lient" with the piece of arty [artillery] on


the angle. As you may have


need of your sketch, which is


quite well drawn, I return it to


you. I am yrs very truly

G. T. Beauregard
