nment for labor performed, and articles furnished for the camps.
One of them was the claim of Asa Palmer, for payment for hay, wood, and straw, furnished for Camp Stanton, in Lynnfield, which amountes, Quartermaster-General, U. S. A., at Washington,—
The Quartermasters who receipted to Mr. Palmer for the property were Lieutenant Hayes, post-quartermaster for a time, who is now somewhere inrmaster of the Thirty-third Regiment, who is now with his regiment in the Army of the Potomac. Mr. Palmer is a poor man; the money is owed by him to the farmers in Lynnfield and neighborhood, and he id what is his due. Captain McKim and all of us are satisfied that the bills are just, and that Mr. Palmer should have been paid long ago. I will thank you, therefore, if you will take the bills and vouchers as they are, and permit Captain McKim to pay Mr. Palmer what is so justly his due, and which he is so much in need of.
The bill was paid; not, however, without some further delay.
