Ordering payment to a clerk for services during a Texas court-martial; two years later, Buell fought the Comanches and later the Apaches.
Manuscript DS: "Approved:/Geo. P. Buell/L. Col. 11th Infy-/President", 1p, 7¾x11¾ . Fort Richardson, Texas, 1872 November 16. In full: "Services rendered as Clerk to General Court Martial convened at Fort Richardson, Texas, per Special Order No. T4 Hdqrs, Dept. of Texas, San Antonio, Texas, April 13 1872 (Copy attached hereto). From June 4 1872 to June 11 1872, inclusive. Being 8 days at $5.00 (five dollars) per day. -$40.00". It is the above portion that Buell has approved. Beneath is a Manuscript DS: "S.W. Anderson" as Captain, 11th Infantry/Judge Advocate G.C.M. In full: "I certify that the above is correct and just; that the Services were rendered as stated; and that they were necessary for the public Service. And that it was impossible to secure the services of a competent soldier." Manuscript DS: "Richard McGrath" at bottom. In full: "Received Fort Richardson, Texas, this 16th day of November 1872 of Maj. J.W. Nicholls, Paymaster, U.S.A. the sum of Forty dollars in full of the above account." Buell (1834-1883) served in the Civil War as Lieutenant Colonel of the Indiana Infantry. He was captured in 1863 near La Vergne, Tennessee and was exchanged. In 1864, he was brevetted Brigadier General in part for "able management of pontoon trains." In 1874 Buell, commanding six companies of cavalry and two of infantry, served in an offensive against the Comanches. Despite adverse weather, he moved up to the Red River from Fort Griffin. On October 9, 1874, he destroyed a large Kiowa village on the Salt Fork of the Brazos and later destroyed two other villages. In 1879, Buell was sent to western Colorado where Ute trouble was anticipated. The following year, he was assigned to direct a major thrust into Mexico to seek out the Apache. Buell's inventiveness led him to design a 400-gallon water wagon for the benefit of his columns in that parched region. Shaded at lower blank edge, lightly stained, ending flourish of Buell's signature smudged. Overall, fine condition.
