[imprinted letterhead] H.. M. Calhoun Attorney-at-Law Franklin, W. Va.

July 26, 1908

Dear Mrs. Crim: - It gives me very great pleasure to send you in separate package the Confederate belt buckle, I hope you will like it. Aside from being somewhat discolored, it is perfect. I did not attempt to clean it up, but am sending it as it was. It was worn by a member of the 62nd and was in the battle at New Market. I hope while you are "mother" to the cadets you will be "sister" to the old 62nd. If there is anything else you may desire, that I might get for you, I shall try to accommodate you. With my very kindest to yourself and daughter I remain, Yours very sincerely H. M. Calhoun
