- John William Wallace, Philadelphia, PA., autograph letter signed to D. Appleton & Co., 10 May 1856
Requests the suppression of an anecdote about General Washington's profanity, which Griswold quoted from Horace Binney Wallace in the Republican Court, pp. 304-305, since it has proved offensive to many who are "more religious than reasonable".
