Editorial Note

This included a letter from Frances Miller Seward to Augustus Henry Seward dated March 24, 1856.
Washington, March 24th 1856
Dear Gus,
There is a vacancy in the Office
of one of the Captains in the Adjutant
General's Department, occasioned by the resignation
of Colonel Freeman
Birth: 1815 Death: 1866-11-12
. The last vacancy of
this kind which occurred before this one, was
filled with one of the older Lieutenants in the
Artillery, and it is understood that this
one will be filled therefore with one of the
older Lieutenants in the Infantry. Our father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

went this morning to the Adjutant General
Birth: 1798 Death: 1876

and to the Secretary of War
Birth: 1808-06-03 Death: 1889-12-06
, and made
application in your behalf for the place. He
was informed that three weeks would probably
pass away before the question will be decided.
I inform you of these things at his request,
and he suggests also that you transmit

to him an application for the place, in due form
signed by yourself.
Affectionately your brother
Frederick
