My connection with the Press I regards as still of uncertain continuance. The Publishers can scarcely afford to pay Hawk and myself both full wages, and probably one of us will retire." He also writes of the effect of the war upon slaves, stating "…As to Osborn's case, this is difficult to be apprehended from the Federal Authorities. Unless a negro takes refuge within their picket lines, the relation between him and his master is the same now as before the war. The mischief is that he can, when he pleases, go within the lines and defy us. It would perhaps be best to get him home gently; but, as you are on the spot, I wish you to follow your own judgement in the matter. Whatever you may do will satisfy me…" He continues by mentioning the Press again and by stating that he does not know when he will be able to visit." He ends the letter by signing "…yrs.

Provenance: Estate of Anne Harrison Taylor & Joseph F. Taylor, Morristown, TN. Biography: Robert Chester Crouch was born at Jonesboro, TN, on April 14, 1844. He enlisted at the beginning of the Civil War as a private of Company B, 19th Tennessee Regiment, of which he was elected 1st lieutenant, this company being a part of Walker's battalion. Francis M. Walker became colonel of the regiment, and this "fighting 19th Tennessee" followed General Felix Kirk Zollicoffer in his Kentucky campaign, was with Albert Sidney Johnston at Shiloh, with Braxton Bragg at Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, and Missionary Ridge, then with Joseph E. Johnston to Atlanta, where Colonel Walker was killed; and with Otho French Strahl at Franklin, then again with Johnston to the surrender in North Carolina. Young Crouch was captured on September 11, 1863, shortly before the Battle of Chickamauga, and was sent to Johnson's Island, where he remained a prisoner to the end of the war. During his imprisonment, a comrade used a makeshift picture equipment and made a picture of Crouch in his uniform, which was reproduced in the magazine Confederate Veteran, Vol. XVII, January 1909, page 29, with the story of how it was made on tin from an oyster can. After the war, Crouch returned home and followed farming for the greater part of his life, being a successful farmer of Hamblen County. He retired years later and made his home in Morristown, TN. He was a member of the W.B. Tate Camp, United Confederate Veterans, and served several years on the State Board of Pensions. He was was twice married and had one daughter. He died on May 2, 1931 in Morristown. (source: Confederate Veteran, Vol. XL, 1932. Research courtesy of William Floyd, Mt. Juliet, TN). CONDITION: Some fading, wear to the photograph and card.
