EDWARD R.S. CANBY, EDWIN M. STANTON and OTHERS. Manuscript DS: "Ed.R.S. Canby" as Brigadier General, 1p, 7¾x9¾. War Department, Washington City, 1864 February 11. In full: "Judge James W. White has permission to proceed to Martinsburg, Va., and to return and is authorized to communicate with Mrs. Myra Clark Gaines, upon matters of a purely business character. Mrs. R.E. White has permission to accompany Judge White as far as Martinsburgh, but not beyond." Beneath Canby's statement is one by White accepting what Canby has granted. It continues on verso and is signed on March 3rd: "James W. White" and by his wife: "Rhoda E. White". An additional related statement, dated March 3, 1864, extending permission, is beneath this one and has also been signed by Judge and Mrs. White. On an integral sheet, General Hardie has penned an ADS: "Jas A Hardie". In part: "The within pass is extended to allow Judge White to proceed to Martinsburg Va under the conditions and circumstances set forth within and in the accompanying telegram, on another occasion within the month of March 1864-and to have two conferences with Mrs. Gaines on the personal business attended to...." Beneath Hardie's statement is an ADS: "Edwin M. Stanton/Sec of War". In full: "Mrs White is permitted to accompany her husband on the same conditional parole as her husband was given." Canby later accepted the surrenders of Confederate Generals Richard Taylor (son of Zachary) and Edmund Kirby-Smith. As Commander of the Department of the Columbia on the Pacific coast, he traveled to northern California to attempt to negotiate a settlement of the Modoc Indian War. On April 11, 1873, while in conference, unarmed, with the Modoc representatives, Canby was killed by Modoc leader Captain Jack, who was hanged for his crime. HARDIE served with McClellan in the Peninsula Campaign (1862) and under Burnside. He then served in the War Department. After the war, Hardie continued as an Army bureaucrat in Washington until his death. Integral sheet (separated from Canby's letter) is soiled and browned and stained. The folds have been reinforced on verso by silking. The folds are chipped at the edges with right corner missing from docket panel. Canby's letter is soiled, browned and stained, chipped at edges at folds, some ink transference at blank areas from being folded. Folds were silked. Both pages are fragile.
