New Orleans, May 28/92 [1892]

Mr. H. A. McArdle

            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
