[ocr errors]

PROVOST MARSHAL'S OFFICE,

Providence, R. I., December 1861. Personally appeared before me this day the above-named Henry Jacobs, and made oath that the above statement is a true and correct copy of the journal entry of Reynolds & Co.'s journal from May 18, 1861, to November 7, 1864, which account shows the balance of the ledger as it stood November 7, 1864.

WM. E. HAMLIN, Capt. and Prorost Varshal, First Dist. of R.I.

Relatire to seizure of Hoyt's papers.

OFFICE MILITARY COMMANDER,

Chicago, Ill., December 9, 1861. GENERAL: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your telegraphic order of the 7th instant, ordering me to seize the papers of Harris Hoyt, two hundred and fifty (250) Wabash Avenue, and send them to you. The dispatch did not reach me until late yesterday afternoon. I immediately caused his premises to be searched, and now send you, by American Express Company, unexamined, all the papers found in the house.

Hoyt has no office here. His wife says he is a cotton dealer; that he has an office in New York; that he is in New York, and that she expects he has got into trouble because he is going to bring claims against the Government for cotton destroyed by Federal soldiers. This was all that was elicited. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JAMES C. STRONG,
Col. 15th 0. R. C., Military Commander

and Military Pro. Marshal. Major General JOHN A. Dix,

Commanding Department of the East, New York.

Hoyt to Prescott.
PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND,

Thursday, October 2, 1862. DEAR SIR: The parties here have proposed to embark in the enterprise at once, and only wait your presence bere to complete the arrangements; come at once, and get your papers afterwards. Yours truly,

HARRIS HOYT. CHARLES L. PRESCOTT, Esq.

Purchase of steamship Ella Warley.

NEW YORK, October 15, 1862. Messrs. WARD & GOVE: Please deliver to C. L. Prescott, esq., or order, steamship Ella Warley, her tackle, apparel, and furniture and engines.

J. H. DRAPER.

Hoyt to Prescott.

HAVANA, January 2, 1863. DEAR FRIEND: There has no steamer arrived here since you left. After much parleying with the custom-house here, we are permitted to land those goods for which the bonds were given; we shall discharge them to-day. I wait only for the papers from New York.

When you write to me I wish you to say to our Captain Witham that I hare charge of the Snow Drift, and that he must carry out my wishes and instructions in all matters connected with the Snow Drift and the enterprise in which we are engaged. Captain Witham remarked to me, after you left, that he was not aware that I bad any interest in the Snow Drift or anything to say about her destination or future movements. I wish you to correct this impression, and give Captain Witham to understand that I am the man, and that he is to do as I direct. Yours truly,

HARRIS HOYT. Col. Chas. L. PRESCOTT.

P. S.-If you manage so as to send those diamonds to Mrs. Hoyt, I wish you would do so.

Brastow to Reynolds.

FIAVANA, April 1, 1863. DEAR SIR: I have closed out the gunny cloths at 12 cts. the Spanish vara, which makes an increase of about six hundred yarıs-net amount, $1,007 05. Also have received $14 37 for commissions charged to steamer Ella Warley, Spanish ounces not being worth more than $16 at Matamoras. I have sold my ounces and bought American gold at 4 per cent. premium, leaving balance in my hands of $972 90; which amount please credit to the Ella Warley and charge to account of schooner Citizen. I leave to-day for Matamoras in the Herbert. Your tickets in the lottery drew blanks. Brodie is salubrious and will leave by the next steamer for the North. Small lots of cotton arriving daily; prices about the same as when you were here. Will advise you of my arrival at Matamoras and the state of affairs at the earliest opportunity. Yours, respectfully,

H. B. BRASTOW. W. H. REYNOLDS, Es 1.

Brastou to Reynolds.

MATAMORAS, July 5, 1863. GENTLEMEN: I am sending down to the mouth of the river 150 bales of cotton for the Citizen's account, which I have arranged to ship by the bark Glacier (under the English flag) at 3 cents freight, payable in New York in currency. Please arrange for insurance on same. This cotton I have paid for in money and goods, and it is as good a lot as there is in Matamoras; 16 bales are silk cotton—a cross of Sea Island and I'plands, they say; it is very handsome, and is usually shipped to Euro
