[Letter from Charles Moore]

Description: Letter from Charles Moore relating stories he heard from a man named Nicholas while riding on the train. The man claimed to be represent a publisher out of Philadelphia. In his early years in Texas, long before the "War of Unpleasantness," he traded a law library worth of books to Governor Henderson in exchange for land. He says that Sam Houston claimed that Texas annexation would have occurred 10 years earlier if they had followed a plan that Governor Jackson had set up. Robert E. Lee also refused to write his biography because it would involve him relating a negative story about Jefferson Davis. Apparently, Lee had recommended they surrender early in the war because continuing would devastate the Confederacy.
