Joseph Paradis Transcript
C.S. Edwards Letter Recommending Joseph Paradis
To His Excellency Samuel Cony,
I have the honor respectfully to most earnestly recommend the promotion of Joseph C. Paradis of Co. F of this command to2nd Lieut. of Co. F vice Lieut. O.B. Stevens promoted, and if not consistent with your will, to commission him as such in this command, to a position in some other regiment , or post, in the State of Maine.
He has formerly been strongly recommended by Gen’ls Sedgwick and Wright to a Lieutenancy in the Regular Army, but owing to existing orders, cannot be mustered in as such.
He has been on duty as clerk in the Adj. Gen’ls Dept. of this Div., and the Gen’l comm’dg Div. informs me he would make an excellent Staff Officer.
He is a man of steady habits, of good moral character, and is a person well worthy of consideration.
I am Sir,
