Abstract:

Two holograph letters written by W. S. Rosecrans on official stationery of the House of Representatives, Washington, D. C. to Herbert Smith, Esq. in San Francisco, California, and one telegram composed and sent by W. S. Rosecrans on official stationery of Western Union Telegraph Company to Chas D. Wheat. The first letter informs Smith that he will be happy to comply with Smith's request and urges Smith to send him and Senator Farley a formal application. The second letter informs Smith that Hon. A. H. Stephens made a nice endorsement of Smith's papers and when Senator Farley endorsed them, he will then see what can be done. The telegram requests that Herbert Smith's application, with his age and qualifications, be sent immediately.
