Hon Jas A Seddon
Dear Sir,
   Permit me to introduce Col. Robt. Jamison of Ala. He has long occupied a very prominent position in that state. He is now the President of the North {East} & South West Ala R Road, and desires to present to you some reasons why that Road is essential to the Government in a Military and Naval point of view. I commend Col Jamison to you as a gentleman of high character, of great practical ability and of untiring energy and industry.
I have the honor to be &c
J. A. Watts
