Hon Richard Yates

Sir.

I write

you at the request of

Susan Pierce, asking

your kind consideration

and clemency towards

her husband Orrin L

Pierce now confined in

the Military Prison at Alton.

I have know herself and

husband for a long time.

She having been a servant

in my Mother's family for

three or four years. I can

willingly certify to her

good character and

respectability - And have

always heard of her husband

as a hard working, honest

man - I hope sincerely that


through your kindnefs he

may soon be released

to his poor wife and

little children who need

his care so much -

Most Truly

Marian Mulligan

To His Excellency Gov Yates
