Hiram Favor Transcript

To His Excellency Gov. Washburn



I telegraphed you this morning respecting seven men that arrived here that wish wish to Enlist into our service.

These men perport to arrive here from New Brunswick, and all claim to have been English Service - how recently I do not propose to say. They are fine looking men, I think can be made very valuable to our service. Six of them have been in the Army and one in the Navy - The latter would like to join our Navy. They bring no means with them, except the clothes they stand in.

There are more or less men under similar circumstances arriving here and at Robinston every few days and if any provision could be made to take care of them when they arrive a good number I have no doubt could be served for our Army. If you should think it desirable to look after them you are at liberty to command my service



Your obt servant

H.S. Favor

P.S. Those arriving at Robinston can easily be delivered here.
