Been away for a long time and just saw a message that your new edition of the Battle of Marianna is finally out. That's fantastic!
Unfortunately, all I have to offer is Yankee greenbacks, which I'm not sure you'll accept under the circumstances. Please advise and I'll try to work out something--perhaps an equivalent amount in Yankee gold!
Am looking forward to your account, having read the first one. As you know I am on the trail of the activities of Capt Mahlon M. Young (7th Vermont) in your area, and also his mysterious presence in the Washington, LA area on 24 Oct 1863.
But it's a great story, and I congratulate you on getting it republished.
