4to 1-page, in full: "Amos Y. Smith was driven from the state of Texas because he would not join the Rebellion against the United States and by reason of his escape from there, he lost his property. He is an honest and competent man for the office of Assessor of Internal Revenue and we ask for him an appointment at the Galveston District, believing that his appointment is just & by his due for his devotion to the Govt."
