Dr Sir

            Yours of the 5th has been


in hand a few days and I Reply at my earliest


convenience as requested by you.

            My Brother Gen’l Ben McCulloch was full six


feet high[,] weight about 165 pounds and was as


straight as an Indian! His complexion was fair


Eyes deep blue, hair tolerable light, Beard


heavy and dark brown.

            The photograph sent you was a


copy of one taken in Memphis Tenn about the


beginning of the Confederate War and is a good


picture of him at the time it was taken.

            He was then in fine health and at his full


weight.

Yours Truly

Henry E. McCulloch
