5th July 1859

Corporal Whitmore of the Hussars posting continues.

Queenborough
5 July, 1859

Sir,

I have the honor to state that in consequence of the frequent and continued irregular conduct of Corporal Henry Whitmore of the 15th Hussars, Assistant Post Master at this place, and also owing to the enmity he has raised against himself amongst the inhabitants here, my duty compels me to request that he may be ordered to return to his duty at the Camp, as early as possible.

I beg leave also to request that a steady Non-Commissioned Officer may be appointed to the Situation of Assistant Post master of Queenborough.

I have the Honor to be,
etc.
Spaulding, JP

Note: We have not discovered what Whitmore was guilty of but he will soon be stripped of his rank and imprisoned.
