I'll just bet that winning the KY derby twice were two of the biggest thrills of your life! You didn't let your own handicap hamper your success. I'm happy that you survived the Civil war imprisonment. Peace and joy in Heaven- -

Remembering you on your birthday, Sir. God bless and rest in peace always.
Had a relative who served with you at Johnson's Island. He was Capt. Benjamin Berry Mullins, Co. "C", 1st Kentucky Mounted Rifles, CSA. I understand it was miserably cold on that wind swept island. Benjamin was from Falmouth, Pendleton Co., Kentucky. May you rest in peace and contentment now, Sir. -
