My dear Cary

Just a line to say I’m sorry I was not able to find you at The Montana. I wanted to say how’d-do, and bring you best wishes from some of your Boston admirers.

I’m on the way to join the Vermont at Norfolk, and have stopped over a few days en route. I wanted to thank you for all your nice favors to me, and dont think they will ever be forgotten.

I dont know whether you are interested in the contest for the Paymaster Generalship. I dont believe, just in confidence, that the powers will look favorably on Cowie’s getting another term,—owing to Daniel’s past interpretation, of one term only for a Bureau head, but he is doing good work. As a man to do most for the staff corps, I believe Sam McGowan would be the best choice.

Best wishes, and in congratulation on your making such a name for yourself. 

Always sincerely yours,

GM Adee
