Letter to the Secretary of War (Daniel S. Lamont)
Atlanta, Ga. April 28, 1894
From: From: Henry Vinton Plummer Papers, Box 1, RG 3430 Nebraska Historical Society
I most specially petition and request that Chaplain H.V. Plummer of the 9th U.S. Calvary be detailed for an exploring and missionary tour to Central Africa. I am sure such a tour would result in infinite good both to that continent and this country in opening the way for means of our young educated men and women to go to that continent, and aid in its civilization and in lifting up the continent through commercial relations.
I have the honor to be yours truly,
