This is a great post Civil War letter to Capt Charles E. Culver (who was on the Savannah during the Tybee Blockades) and from John H. Lippert asking for help in his mission. It mentions him giving the captain an introduction to Governor Pease of Texas. It mentions Stump Speeches and helping the "Colored People". What is ironic is that Captain Culver does not want the Rebs or Rebels to get the upper hand, yet he fought on the Confederate Side from what our research regarding him during the Civil War. It also mentions that he will help if he can get a guard to keep him from being assassinated! When he mentions the Heirarch Lyon he is evidently referring the Nathanial Lyon according to our research on this subject. Great Reconstruction content. Here are snippets; Spring Hill Navarro Co, Oct 21st 1867 ’s HDQT. I will be able to set you all right unless you have done something of which I am not aware. In that case of course, I would fail to do you any good if Judge Waters is a Loyal Man as he professes to be. It does appear to me that he could be of great service to you at this time by making Public Speeches and instructing the colored people, for the Judge is well informed and has a fine education and can doubtless make a fine Stump Speech. So he should stand by you in your efforts to sustain the Loyal Men in your District, which I have every reason to believe you have done to the best of your ability for which I, as a Loyal Man, tender you my Thanks and Cordial Support and Cooperation in any way possible. And for your encouragement please permit me to say you have Thanks and Sympathy of all Loyal Men in Navarro County and let me say to you – Go on and faithfully discharge your duty and fear nothing but let your Watch Word be that of the Dying words of the Heirarch Lyon at Wilson’s Creek – Onward Boys – We’ll Whip Them Yet. Dear Capt. Yours of the 15th is at hand. I was not at home at the time or I should have went with you to Austin. But Permit me to say to you I will see Gov. Pease (Governor Pease) and put him all right as far as you are concerned of this you may rest assured. You say the Rebs will get the upper hand if I do not help you. I would ask you where is C.R. Waters, P.W. Hall, F. H. Miller and Co that they do not stand by you and Counsel the Colored People in their duty. Are they weak kneed? You are doubtless a ware of the duties I have to perform and I have 10 Counties to cerp (?) on the right track. But I expect to Resign my Position in a few days and then I will take the Stump if I can get a guard to prevent assassination and for this object I will go to Austin next week. Friend Culver I said something to you about Capt J.J. Emerson when I was at your place and you remarked you knew me better than you did a half hour before. If I could now see you I could tell you something more and could apprise you of the cause of mutch of your trouble and from whence they came. I doubt mutch if you are not mistaken as to YOUR E. M. Pease. I received a letter from the Governor last night on the main points of his views. When I see him, I will lay your case before him for I am fully aware that you have the most Rebellious District in the state. This I can say knowingly as I am well acquainted with all the people of the Sou __ (south?) and have been for years. Besides, I have letters in my possession to fully prove the fact. So if you are not ousted before I get to H. D. E. F. Write Soon direct to Spring Hill Navarro Co. Believe me as ever your friend, John H. Lippart. Clear and legible would be better save for some splitting along the folds.
