1p., 8vo. Bifolium, addressed, with red ink postmark, on the reverse of the second leaf, to 'Capt. A. Partridge | Middletown | Cont.' Good, on lightly-aged paper. Written during the three years that Partridge's American Literary, Scientific and Military Academy was situated at Middletown. The letter begins 'Before receiving your favor I had asked & obtained orders for Cadet Johnson, now Midshipman, for immediate Service; which I did, supposing, first, that he was troublesome to you, and, secondly, that he was already almost too old to be put under proper discipline with youth, many of whom in the same station are older than himself.' Gales ends by asking Partridge to advance Johnson $30 for his travel expenses. N° de ref. de la librería 11382
