Washington, D.C., August 3, 1888
Major A.W. Holden, President Vet. Association, 22d Reg't N.Y.V.I., Glens Falls, N.Y.
Dear Sir: I regret very much that it will be impossible for me to accept your kind invitation to attend the first annual reunion of your veteran association. I always remember with so much pleasure my first brigade — all of New York regiments, and none better than the 22d — with its soldierly and gallant Colonel Phelps.
        I trust you will have a happy and a numerous reunion, and that you will continue to have them for many, many years.

                                          I am very truly yours.
                                   C.C. AUGUR, BRIG. GEN'L U.S.A. (retired)

August 2, 1888

Major Austin W, Holden. Comrade: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of you invitation to attend the first reunion of the 22d New York on the 9th inst. I sincerely regret that circumstances beyond my control will prevent my being with you. Hoping and believing you will have a good time, I am.

                                   Truly yours,        JNO. P. HATCH,
                                   Brig. & B'v't Maj. Gen'l, U.S. Vols.

August 7, 1888

My Dear Doctor: I am sorry to be obliged to say I cannot take part in the reunion of the dear old 22d. Circumstances keep me here this summer much against my will. Be good enough to give my love to the buys — rather old boys by this time — Ormsby, Patten, Fassett, and the rest of them. 
       The 22d did its duty, no more, no less; and duty is better than glory.
       I thank God who enabled me to take part in the preservation of our country and the destruction of slavery. We did the job well and it will stay done. I shall think of you on the 9th. Hope you will have good weather and a good time.

                                   Yours very truly,                      GEORGE CLENDON

MAJOR A.W. HOLDEN, president.
