George Thomas of New Orleans wrote to Brig. Gen. George F. Shepley, military governor of Louisiana, to inform him about a couple who, he believed, were going in and out of Union lines and who were not friends of the Union.

Thomas told Shepley, a Portland lawyer before and after the war, where he could find the couple.

He added "f.m.c." after his name, indicating he was a free man of color.
