News: Inclosed is a letter from myselt
to the president of the United States,
which explains itbolf. Tho occasion that
draws it forth is one that appeal
strongly to my patriotic instincts and is
not ono of partisan politics.
Even should the storm of war blow
over and 1 think it will I know thous
ands of my old comrades in arms would
be deeply gratified at my offer, on my
own niul their behalf, to serve theii
country on the field and demonstrate a

Roanoke, Va., Jan. 21. Benjamin
Harrison, President of tho United
States Respected Sir: In event hostilities
are declared against Chile for an offense
offered American seamen far greatei
than that which provoked our war with
Great Britain in 1812, tho uudersigned
earnestly desires to attest his love for his
native land and devotion to its ilag by 11
tender of his iersonal military bervict
and the possible benefit of his long prac
tical experience in tho cavalry arm of
extensive field operations to the govern
ment of tho United States, of whose
forces, both in peace and war, you art
the constitutional commander-in-chief.
Having berved in the United States
Second dragoons in the army of occupa
tion under General Taylor in 1815-10,
also as aide-de-camp and colonel com
manding the camp of military in
struction and the Fourth Texas cavalry,
late Confederate Stales army, and hav
ing also acted as commander of tho
cavalry brigade which bore my name
for three years throughout all the active
field operations in the Traiismississippi
department of tho late Confederate
States army, whether ou the west bank
of tho Mississippi or the' eventful and
historic campaigns of the Red and Ar
kansas river valleys, I feel justified in
claiming an exiwricnce, tactical and
strategic, in that arm of military service
which emboldens me to hereby offer
to raise a brigade of two or more Texa
veteran cavalry, to consist each of 100(1
unrivaled horsemen, experienced to tho
use of arms, familiar with outpost and
advance guard duty and military evolu
tions, each man of whom as eager and
willing as myself to prove their devotion
to their country and its flag should
Chile refuse reparation for the indigni
ties offered this government, and for re
cent murders and outrages indicted on
Americans in tho sheets of Valparaiso
bolely because they were Americans and
represented this republic in foreign wa
ters. If impressment of American sailors
was a casus belli in 1812, how much
more tho wanton and brutal murder of
American men-of-war'b men in 18111 in a
supposed friendly port. If the forcible
seizure and impressment of seamen from
American ships on tho high seas by tho
British war vessels was justification for
hostilities with Great Britain, how
much moro the attempt at wholesale as
sassination (as attested by officers as
well as men) of American seamen be
cause the uniform of its victims repre
sented our people and its government,
imperatively demands reparation and
In defense of "sailors' rights" thon
(1812) wo subjected ourselves to tho hu
miliation of tho capture of Washington
City and tho destruction of its capitol,
but it ended in the victory of Jackson at
New Orleans, our supremacy on the seat)
and the treaty recognition of a now in
ternational law that tho Hag represents
sovereignty and covers tho ship as well
as tho territory, both hereafter Baoied
from intrusion and neither to bo invaded
with impunity. Was not this result
worth all it cost of blood and treasure?
It is not an issue of partisan politics
but appeals to individual patriotism
alone. The person of an American from
south or north, from west or east, when
abroad, should bear tho sacred charm
which once invested the proud citizen of
ancient Rome with universal safety and
respect, as now accorded the subjects of
England, becuuso assured and accorded
protection by all tho power of either om
pire. It is thereforo an issue which en

civilized nations as it should every in
dividual citizen in the demand and en
forcement of redres.
To this end I invoke your recommen
dation or approval if passed into law of
the repeal of section 1218 of tho revised
statues of the United States, which now
imposes military disabilities on the par
ticipant in the late Confederate service
This exclusion from military rank is an
anchorism in a restored union, where
political disabilities having been already
removed the same citizen is now eligible
either to political preferment or to any
position in the civil service (not except
ing tho presidency itself) whereby the
said citizen now excluded by said law
from a lieutenancy, would, if elected
president, become commander of tho en
tire forces of tho United States.
If tho privilege asked to cement a re
stored nationality with our blood, or if
need bo to die for one's country in vindi
cation of ita honor or in ledress of its
wrongs, is now accorded veterans of tho
late Confederacy, it would heal tho last
wound and obliterate tho last scar in
flicted in the late war of states; states no
longer "discordant, dissevered, beliger
ent," but fully regenerated, and
thereforo for tho first timo truly
disenthralled, and therefore at last re
united, ono and indivisible forever.
In proof that my claun as an experi
enced and approved cavalry officer and
soldier is not groundless, I refer without
hesitation to tho rank and file of the
veteiau survivors of tho late Transmis
sissippi army throughout the state of
Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, and
General E. Kirby Smith, now of Ken
tucky, former commander of that de
partment of tho late Confederate states;
and for special references I likewiso 10
for to Senator Coke, ex-Senator Reagan,
Congressmen Culberson and Abbott, all
of Texas; also to General Reynolds, late
commander of department of Texas,
now a resident of Washington, D. C,
and Genoral Avery, whoso address is

City, both of the volunteer and regular
army of tho United States. Respect
fully, your obedient servant.
