Title:J.D.B. De Bow letter, 1861 July 4

Letter from J.D.B. DeBow, near Nashville, Tenn., to Charles Gayarré points out that it is the fourth of July and what did it get us, a despotism more absolute and irrepressible than we left. He agrees with Gayarré that it will be a short war, comments on the cost of the war and the attitude of England and France, and speculates how the war could be concluded with a convention of delegates from both sides.
