Mr. H. A. McArdle
San Antonio Tex.
Your letter of the 26th inst has been
sent to me by my wife who is absent.
I told my daughter to hunt up the Sherman
Scrap book & copy the piece of Poetry
in regard to the glove & I will send
it to you as soon as she sends it to me.
My wife's recollection of the "Flag" is that
it was pale blue ground with blue silk
fringe, but she is not sure. Mrs.
W. S. Kendall[,] her sister, has a description
that says the ground was white with
a gold fringe, [and] from what I have seen
of the remains of the Flag, I am inclined
to believe that Mrs. Kendalls description
is Correct. When you go to Austin
you might look at the Flag in the
case in [the] Insurance Commissioners room
& form some idea of it yourself. I think
that would be the best way to settle it.
