Requests evidence in favor of or against him!

7 1/2 x 9 3/4, in ink, on imprinted letter sheet.

Head Quarters, Middle Military Dept.
Office, Chief Quartermaster,
Baltimore, Sept. 25th, 1865

Bvt. Maj. Genl. A. Flagg, A.Q.M.
Harpers Ferry, Va.


You will please make an investigation, and ascertain as to the loyalty of Joshua Pusey, who lives somewhere in Loudon County, Va. He has certificate of Provost Marshal, but it is not enough. Furnish all evidence in his favor, or against, that you can readily procure.

Very Respectfully,
Your Obt. Servant,
G.W. Bradley
Colonel, Chief Q.M.

Light age toning and wear. There are four very small punch holes at the top of the document which do not affect any of the content. Very interesting document regarding the loyalty of this possible ex-Confederate soldier or Virginia farmer or merchant. Soldiers and citizens living in states that had been in rebellion with the Federal government were required to swear and sign loyalty oaths to the United States. Apparently this fellow had a certificate from a Provost Marshal, but Colonel Bradley wants more proof of his loyalty to the United States and so he orders an officer at Harpers Ferry to start an investigation into the matter.

George W. Bradley, who signed this document, enlisted as a captain, on November 26, 1862, and was commissioned into the U.S. Volunteers Quartermaster's Department. He was promoted to lieutenant colonel, on September 17, 1864. He was discharged for promotion, November 4, 1864, and was commissioned colonel, U.S. Army Quartermaster's Department. He was assigned as depot quartermaster at City Point, Va., and among other duties he had charge of water transportation on the James River.
