Editorial Note

Original I possession of Ray and Sue Messenger, Moravia, N; digitized, transcribed, and included on website with their permission.
Washington
Dec. 23d
My dear Will,
I have your telegram
asking whether McDougall
Birth: 1839-06-14 Death: 1914-05-24
has
been appointed a Brigadier General
So far as I know, he has not
been.
I will ask Mr Stanton
Birth: 1814-12-19 Death: 1869-12-24
when
I meet him, and if McD. Has
been appointed, I will let you know
at once. I do not send to
the War Department to inquire,
Page 2

because I learned, on making a
similar application a few days
ago, that the rules of Department
forbid the subordinate officers to
give information of the sort, except
when directed to do so by the
Secretary. — a rule similar to
that of our own Department in
regard to appointments prior to
confirmation
Affectionately yours
F.W. Seward
Lieut. Col. W.H. Seward Jr.
