My Dear Colonel Taylor

            Let me ask if in making up your estimate of General Lees numbers at Gettysburg you did not include Jenkins brigade as well as Corsi‚Äôs both of which were left in Virginia, and were parts of General Picketts division. My volume of your book was burnt when my residence, was burnt, and I dont find one here with friends or in the stores. Have you one that you can lend until I can get through with my work, and if you have a war time photograph of yourself I would like it with your official signature on the face of it

Yours Truly

J Longstreet
