Charles P. Mattocks Transcript Regarding Gookin
Head Quarters 17th Maine Inf.
Respectfully Returned -----
In reply to the within request I have the honor to state, that promotions within this Regiment are not made upon civil recommendations. Without casting any reflection upon Ser’t Gookin who is a good soldier, I would respectfully state that the charge of a deserved promotion being withheld implies a severe reflection upon the judgment of his Colonel, which perhaps is not the quickest mode of securing the promotion of this man.
Chas P. Mattocks, Major Commanding 17th Maine Infantry
