such manipulation was not possible. Where
available, the originals photocopied for publication
have been digitized and have been added,

REMARKS: I often heard of DOCT. TAYLOR as being in the Territorial Service
in 1840. He was not embraced on any Roll of my mustering unless he be found
on Col. W. J. BAILEY"S of Nov. 23, 1840. VERDIER was on that roll by order
of the Adjt. Gen'l but I think TAYLOR was not. And I instructed COL.
BAILEY now to embrace DOCT. T. in his remarks for the whole time of his sup-
posed service that he may be paid.

BERRY'S service is not shown by the face of this roll It consisted in the
payments mentioned in his evidence and he was not thereby called from home
but was attending to his private business as a merchant. He says much of
the time from Feb. 20 to May 20 was occupied in making the payments. I rec-
comend that the time be limited to one month for pay and allowance to him as
Paymaster and that his payments be examined to ascertain whether they were
correctly calculated and rec. also whether W. H. MICHAEL was embraced in the
Quarter Master's Department (COLLINS) for the time he was paid by B.

REMARKS BY INS. GEN 'L No officers of Quartermaster's Department are mustered
on this Roll with the rank in which they served. "The character and extent of
service of each" are given in the remarks opposite the respective names. I re-
commend that for the time they were in service as shown by the remarks, COLLINS
be paid as Quartermaster (rank of Major) and MOSHER, PERRY, SHAW and HARBOUR as
Assistant Quartermaster (rank of Captain). ARMSTRONG performed but little ser-
vice and is reported to have detected in some fraudulent transaction for which
he absconded. JOHN OSTEEN mustered as Pri. (No. 42) on the roll of Capt. W. J.
BAILEY'S Company from 20 May to 20 Sept. 1839 performed the duties of Q. Mtr.
in that company under an irregular appointment (see the Muster Roll). And
CHARLES L. DELL Aide de Camp to Gov. REID and directed by the latter to sup-
ly and did furnish subsistence and forage to several companies in Territorial
service in East Flor. in and from the month of August 1840 and made Returns
therefore to the Board for Investigating militia claims in 1841. He was the
only one, I believe, employed in Terr'l. service between the Suwane and St.
Johns Rivers. I have not seen him to ascertain for what companies and what










VOLUME 1, PP 83-84

time he furnished but his Returns will show. His appointment or assignment
to the duty as these two cases were such as not to justify the mustering of
OSTEEN and DELL in the Quarter Master's Department Muster Roll; and I embrace
them in these remarks for the purpose of calling the attention of the Depart-
ments at Washington to the service rendered, that the persons may be paid for
their appointments should be deemed legal or authentic. All those borne on
the face of the Roll were in Mid-Flor.. They and the two mentioned in these
remarks are all it is believed, who performed service under Terr'l. authority
during the time embraced on the roll.
