One page of a letter from Morris Brown, Jr., 126th New York Infantry [undated]
I don't like the way you talk about your chances in regard to the B? Marshall. Pitch in and work for yourself as others work for themselves. Who cares for Folger. Your chances are as good as anyone's, if you will only try & work as though it was life or death. We will do all we can & until our appointment is made we will consider your chance as good as anyone else's Morris Brown Jr.
