Sworn Statement

Camp Jalapa Mexico
June 27th 1848.

Statement

About the 6th of June, at Tacubaya Mexico, I took to Capt Gore's room the sum of $1000.00 Qr. Mr. funds, to be locked up in his trunk for safe keeping, my own chest having previously had the lock broken. I also deemed it safer to have Public money in the room of some Officer who did not disburse public funds, because they would be less likely to be suspected of having any conciderable amount about them. On the night of the 16th of June 1848 as Shown by the accompanying affidavits, the trunk containing these funds was Stolen from the tent of Capt. Gore whilst he and Lieut De Russy 4th Infantry were both sleeping in the tent

DS, Mr. and Mrs. Philip D. Sang, River Forest, Ill. This document was discussed by Mary A. Benjamin, "Grant and the Lost $1000," The Collector, LXIX, 2, 3 (Feb.-March, 1956), 17-20. Also described was the report of a board of inquiry, called by Gen. Worth at USG's request, composed of Bvt. Col. Francis Lee of Pa., 1st Lt. De Lancey Floyd-Jones of N. Y., USMA 1846, and Bvt. Capt. Maurice Maloney, which concluded "that no blame can attach to Lt. U. S. Grant, that he took every means to secure the Money—that the place he deposited it was the most secure in camp, and they exonerate him from all censure." Also described were three affidavits, each written by USG and attested by 1st Lt. Henry Davies
