Made Contact with librarian at Univ of Virginia, where they have microfilm copies of various Virginia. Per the contact, she indicates: "I was finally able to check microfilm for July 24 1863 of the daily edition of the Richmond Whig for the letter by J Arthur Taylor to his father, and unfortunately did not find it. I also checked the July 22, 23 and 25 issues, and didn't find it. "
Do you have a copy of this article for distribution?
She also notes that there is also the The Richmond Whig &
Public Advertiser, which UVA owns in microfilm. However, the reel for 1863 is missing. Could the letter have been in this newspaper?
Any direction would be appreciated
