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.
