10th Collection District, State of Illinois.

Winchester, 12 Nov. 1864

His Excy,

Gov. Yates,

Dear Gov.

I suppose we have carried the Legislature; allow me to join in the chorus of congratulations, which I trust will grow louder and larger until it swells into one grand shout of Amen! and Amen!! over your election to the Senate.

We have done well in Scott - having reduced the majority of over 300 to 37!!

If I can aid you in any way to achieve the Senatorial Success, let me know and I am that! Yours Ever, for God and our Country!

John Moses.


Col John Moses

Winchester 12th Nov 64.
