McClellan, George Brinton (1826-1885)
Autograph letter signed
to William T. Sherman
McClellan send regrets that he was not able to attend the wedding of Sherman's daughter. States that they are leaving tomorrow for Venice, then Alexandria and the Nile to spend the winter. Mentions that it must be a relief to be away from all the politicians in Washington, as Sherman had moved to St. Louis. "I can imagine what a relief it must be to you to get rid of the politicians & the very disagreeable atmosphere of that abominable city." Written from the Hotel Byron, Villeneuve, Switzerland. Not docketed in Sherman's hand.
