Lt. Col. I. W. Mallet

Comd'g Col.
Col.

I have to report That I find upon examination that there is a great carelessness on the part of R. A. Benson timekeeper in the discharge of his duties.
This day he has sent in a requisition for a lot of shoes for the negroes. in the employment of the C. S. Central Laboratory & upon investigation I find that he has made requisitions for shoes for Clayton Thomas, Jack Moreland, and Lewis Mitchell - Thomas Mitchell, Ben Thomas, & Edmund Marshall that shoes were issued for the above named slaves at the following times ???

Clayton Thomas, March 11, 1864
Jack Moreland , July, 6, "
Louis Mitchell, June 25, "
Thomas Mitchell*, July 6, "
Ben Thomas, March 11, "
Edmund Marshall March " "

These shoes first sent may have been delivered to the negroes ,
but the fact shown have been repeats otherwise it would
(page 2)not be known if any particular negro has been furnished or not.
I would also call your attention to this further evidence of carelessness............................
