Swears he took the sum of $1000 to Captain Gore's room on June 6 "to be locked up in his trunk for safe keeping, my own chest having previously had the lock broken. I also deemed it safer to have public money in the room of some officer who did not disburse public funds, because they would be less likely to be suspected of having any conciderable [sic] amount about them." Asserts that the trunk was stolen from the tent of Captain Gore while he and Lieutenant De Russy were sleeping, as shown by the accompanying affidavits. Signed by Ulysses S. Grant and 1st Lieutenant H.D. Waller, Judge Advocate of the General Court Marshall.
