Albert Tracy Transcript

Dear Gen’l:

It is rumored here that Maj. Gardner is to be relieved as Dep. Provost Marshal of Me on account of ill health. If this be the case, are you so situated as to be able to do anything for me? I think our friends in this locality would be satisfied to have me assigned to the duty. I would not interfere with Maj. Gardner – I only speak of the matter in case he is to go out. Mr. Hamlin and others have endorsed me long since for assignment in Maine. I do not fully recover from my fever, etc. but I think I could attend to the business of the place in question, and work with the State authorities.

Please let me know and oblige.
Yours in the cause,
Albert Tracy
Maj. USA

Gen’l Hodsdon
Adjutant Me
Augusta, Me

You can say if it is of any consequence that I vote for Abe and the Union.
