Thomas Jones Sign L

Handwritten note by Thomas A. Jones:

“Captn Williams offered the reward on Tuesday 18th of April 1865 in Brawner’s Hotel in Port Tobacco, Md. And on the 22d of April 1865 at night I took Booth and Harold to a point on the Potomac River, known as Dent’s Meadow, in Charles County, Md.

And from thence landed them on a Point at the mouth of Machodoc Chreek, in King George County, Va.

Respectfully yours

T. A. Jones”
