Ed Miles to Miss Sherman, November 1885

Nov 2 1885

Miss


            Sherman

Dear Miss,

            I joined Company A [?] called the


Buck Eye Rangers in the Brassos Bottom in April 1836.


It was then commanded by Capt Wm Wood, Col S.


Sherman having then been promoted.

            This Company was raised and armed and


Equiped at New Port KY and the Ladies presented


them with a very Beutiful [sic] Banner made of Silk,


on this was the Portrait of a Female [and] also "Pre-


sented by the Ladies of New Port KY[.]"  "Victory or Death"


[was] handsomely and artistically painted on the


Shield [and] also [there] was a Ladies [sic] Kid Glove.

            Our artist at Independence Texas[,] Mr


McArdle, wants to paint the Battle Field


of San Jacinto, and as our honored Secty [?] Moses


Austin Bryan, knowing me to have been a member


of that company desires that I should obtain it, if


only from a copy & if you can aid us in this, or in any


way, will please do so.

Yours, Edward Miles.
