Philadelphia, Feby. 3rd 1863



My friend Vaux informs me that you are a brother of Maj. Genl. J.F. Reynolds, and I have taken the liberty of asking you to furnish me with an impression of the seal of his native county.  I am getting up a sword for the Penna. Reserves who intend it for a surprise to your brother.  If there is anything appropriate in the seal of his county I design having it placed under the coat of arms of the state.  If you can furnish me with the impression of the seal you will much oblige me.

Yours Respectfully
