Plea to Gen. Shepley for work, Brunswick, 1863
Contributed by Maine Historical Society
Alfred J. Stone (1808-1873) of Brunswick wrote to Brig. Gen. George F. Shepley, military governor of Louisiana, for help in securing a "position by which I can make some money." He said he did not need to state that he had "failed," for that was well understood.
Stone, who had been the postmaster in Brunswick, wrote that he did not care what the business was -- he just needed to make money. He said his business acumen was as good as ever. Stone, like Shepley, was a Democrat.
