Receivers Office
First National Bank of Selma.
Selma Ala Feby 26, 1868.
(C. Cadle Jr. Receiving)

I take pleasure in saying that Mr C.C. Bartlett. Sub Asst Commissioner Bureau R.F. and A.L. at this place cannot be charged with having used his influence to defeat the Constitution late submitted to the people of this State for ratification, and further that I consider him in favor of the Congressional plan of Reconstruction.

Mr. Bartlett attends closely to the duties of his office, and were he to take any political action it would be in accord with the principles of the Republican party, and not with the party lately engaged in rebellion.

(Signed) C. Cadle Jr.
