Headquarters, Sub-District of Ala.,
Montgomery, Ala., Feb 11th 1867.

Dear General

I am this morning in receipt of your note per Major Ketchum requesting "copies" of the Journal of the Secession Convention held here in 1861.

I forward to-day the only one that can be found that is not private property. I regret that I am unable to find others. It is worth preserving as an historical document that is becoming very rare.

Very respectfully
Your obedient Servant
Wager Swayne
Maj. Gen'l.

Maj. Gen. O. O. Howard
