Edward Miles to McArdle, October 1885

San Antonio Texas October 15th 1885.

Mr. H. A. McArdle

Dear Sir,

Your very complementary letter of the 12th


is duly at hand, and very highly appreciated.

I have a promise of the Picture of


the Alamo from Mr. Gentilz and will obtain one for


you if possible & I may [be] able soon to send you


mine as I am. An Artist in Galveston took


100 or two hundred pictures at Galveston in 1879 of the


Texas Veterans[.] [H]e has mine also.

I have a Photograph of Capt Sylvester from


New Orleans about 3 years since-he is now dead. [H]e was our


color-bearer and 2nd Sergeant.

I am with Respect


Yours Truly


Edward Miles

P.S. I received two pictures from Col Bryan. I have given


the one to [of] "Big Foot" to a neighbor of his who will see that


it is delivered in due season.
