P.1. Endorsement on letter of Mr. Patrick
Montgomery Ala. Mar 4" 69

Respectfully returned to Edwin Beecher Asst Comr. with the following statement

Mr Patrick has never called upon me for his transportation, although repeatedly notified (twice in writing) that it was ready; that he could have it at any time, by calling and receipting for the same; and has been retained against orders, to forward all unclaimed transportation to Washington, to show Mr Patrick that there was no wish to deprive him of his dues.

H.M. Bush Asst Supt.

Respectfully returned to Brvt Maj Genl. O.O. Howard Commissioner &c Washington D.C.

I have no knowledge of Mr Patrick


ever calling at my office for the transportation. I directed Capt Bush to have it prepared, which I am satisfied was done in proper time, and was not issued because Mr Patrick failed to give the receipt required. All assertions of his relative to annoy and defraud him were unknown to me, and I believe gratuitous on his part and without foundation. I directed Capt Bush some time ago to notify Mr Patrick that unless called for by a certain day the transportation would be returned to Washington
