Letter from Adjutant-General's Office re fraudulent county payments - 1864

Four page letter from Adjutant-General's Office, dated June 24, 1864 to the governor of Massachusetts concerning complaints "that certain towns have enlisted and paid local bounties to men whose names appear upon the Muster Rolls as from one town and upon the Description Rolls as from another." The adjutant-general feels that the cause of discrepancies has been the "free use of money by trading with brokers and swindlers. And the remedy is, not to pay a cent of bounty or premium until the recruit is mustered in; and then to pay it to the recruit, and not to the broker."
