A nice 1866 autograph letter signed by Union General John G. Foster while commander of the Department of Florida. Written to Captain Charles Hunt of the 44th Massachusetts, the letter extended Foster’s regrets for being unable to attend a dinner of the 44th’s officers in Boston. It reads:

Tallahassee Fla
March 18 1866

Capt Charles Hunt
44th Mass Vols
Boston

My Dear Captain
Please accept my thanks for your kind invitation to dine with the officers of the 44th on the 14th inst. which, if I could have been present, would have afforded me great enjoyment. I always remember my associations with the excellent regiments from Massachusetts with great pleasure, and of none have I pleasanter recollections than of the 24th and 44th.

Please to remember me very kindly to all the officers of your regiment and say to them that I hope to have an opportunity of seeing them all before another year.

Very truly yours
J. G. Foster
M. G. Vols Comd’g

The letter was written on two pages of a 5” x 8” sheet of Foster’s personal monogrammed stationery. It is in excellent condition with creases where it was originally folded. There are small remnants of album mounting on the reverse.
