Simon Cameron to William H. Seward, October 5, 1861

My dr Sir

It is entirely wrong to say I have unkind feelings towards Gnl. Tyler. On the contrary, I have known him for years, and respect him as a man.

You know that I have not interfered in the apptments of Generals, but in a single case when I asked the President to select one and only one, from Pennsylvania.

Mr Peabody does me wrong – but he I suppose has listened to some one who perhaps had some disposition to do me injustice

Very truly yrs
Simon Cameron
Oct. 5, 1861.
Mr. Seward.
