Wilmette March 17th 1889

Honorable George E. Adams,

Dear Sir,

I was appointed Post Master at Wilmette, Cook County, Illinois, April 19th 1870. On account of

poor health my wife and myself expects to go to Colorado the coming summer and I wish to

resign and have William H. Kinney appointed Post Master in my place. Mr. Kinney has been my

deputy for the last seventeen years and is well qualified in every way to perform the duties of the

office. Will you please assist me at the post office department in Washington in getting my

resignation excepted [accepted] and William H. Kinney appointed in my place. If this is not the

proper course to take to hand in my resignation will you please inform me,

Yours Truly

A. McDaniel

[Written upside down across the top] Alexander J. Howell Esq., 331 West 19th Street, New York
