I.T. Williams praise of Gen. G.F. Shepley, 1863

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Isaiah T. Williams, a prominent New York lawyer, wrote to Brig. Gen. George F. Shepley, military governor of Louisiana, expressing his regret that he had not seen Shepley in New York or Maine on the general's recent visit there.

Williams praised Shepley for a speech he gave in Portland. He wrote, "I will say if both in the field & in the Council Chamber you act as effectively for your country as you did upon the rostrum your fame will not be likely to be eclipsed in your day or mine."

Williams also wanted to recommend a friend for employment.
