    Benjamin Klatsky Newbie

      I am trying to find a letter cited as "Letter of R. S. Williamson to Joseph Hooker, June 15, 1850, in Adjutant General's Office, Pacific Division."  Any help would be appreciated.

          Dear Mr. Klatsky,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Letters and Telegrams Received, 1849 - 1865 in the Records of U.S. Army Continental Commands (Record Group 393) that includes records of the Pacific Division. We also located the Generals' Papers and Books, 1830 - 1884 in Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that includes the Papers and Books of General Joseph Hooker. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at archives1reference@nara.gov.
