March 23, 1868. General Samuel Breck, Assistant Adjutant General, U. S.A. Sir: It appears from papers on file in this office that one Joseph S. Carmany enlisted in the military service of the United States at Harrisburgh, Pennsylvania, on the 13th November, 1858, and that he deserted on the 16th of May, 1859. We have no information at hand of the regiment or corps to which he was attached. For the use of the Attorney General ad interim, I have to request you to inform me whether your records show any other charge than desertion against said soldier. Respectfully, your obedient serv't, John M. Binckley, Assistant Attorney General.
