Col. Swords to General Jesup

Deputy Qr Master Genls Office
Department of the Pacific
San Francisco, Cal Feby 25th 1858


I have the honor to transmit herewith several accounts referred to this office by Lt Garber for services rendered, under his direction, while in charge of some Indians in 1856 & 1857.

As I do not consider the accounts properly belonging to the Qr Mas' Dept I have declined ordering the payment of them, and as the Supd. of Indian Affairs states that he has no dunds applicable to the purpose they are now, by direction of Genl. Clarke, sent to you, with the request that you will have them referred to the proper Department. Should you not think proper to allow this payment from the funds of the Qr. Mas. Dept.

Very Respectfully
Your Ob. Serv.
signed / Thos. Swords
Dep Qr. Mas. Genl.

Major Genl. Tho. S. Jessup
Quarter Master Genl.
U.S. Army
