Letter from Hugh M. Foley to Ulysses S. Grant, p. 3
I request you to please keep this secret for fear that our enemies might destroy my property in their immediate midst, as I am engaged in farming and have a good many hands employed and all that I am worth is there invested. I sincerely hope this may receive your most favorable consideration and reply at your earliest convenience all of which I shall humbly pray.
Yours Very Truly
Hugh M. Foley
