Message of Andrew Johnson, Jr., agent of the Tennessee Penitentiary, to the legislative committee, regular session. January, 1866

Nashville: S. C. Mercer, Printer to the State, 1866. Title leaf (blank verso), pp.219-222 [4p.] on reasonably alkaline paper, 8.7x5.5 inch self-wraps, disbound and completely looseleaf. Faint edgewear, dust-soiled margins, neat numerals and a careless underline on title, very good condition: for binding. Appears to be a stenographically recorded statement, Mr. Johnson reading out a statement; he complains that inspectors treat him "coolly" and have imputed serious abuses of inmates and irregularities with money. He further begs leave to convert a building on prison property to "sales" (unspecified). Find much detail on the flagstone pavement work he undertook (for which grossly underpaid).
