The Writings of Carl Schurz/To John T. Morse, Jr., November 19th, 1886


New York, Nov. 19, 1886.

I am glad to know that you approve of the closing chapter [of Henry Clay] as it stands. I am especially anxious that there should be no mistakes as to facts and dates in the book. I have, indeed, been careful to verify everything—at least I think I have. But I may have, here and there, depended too much upon my memory, and thus some little errors may have slipped in. I should be especially obliged to you for advising me if, in reading the proof, anything of a doubtful nature should occur to you.
