They put it in a bag and Grant said he would place it in the trunk of Captain Alvord, but Jones understands that he later placed it in the trunk of Captain Gore. Signed by DeL. Floyd Jones and by 1st Lieutenant H.D. Waller, Judge Advocate of the General Court Marshall.
The letter is written in Grant's own hand, though it is signed by Jones and Waller.
