Letter from Record Clerk

Schwartz, W. B. - 1910-01-11 Letter from Record ClerkCOPY

Jan. 11, 1910.
Major R. W. McClaughrey,
Warden, U. S. Penitentiary,
Leavenworth, Kansas,

Sir: –

Referring to Mr. R. V. LaDow’s letter of the 8th., inst., asking for information as to how William B. Schwartz, #5476, was discharged on Dec. 25th., 1909, instead of Jan. 9th., or later, I have to say that I find in figuring the date of sentence the clerk at the time took the date the Commitment was certified to (Dec. 11, 1906) instead of the date of the sentence Nov. 27th., 1906.

The mistake was discovered and corrected but evidently no corrected card was sent to the Superintendent of Prisons.

Previous to the ruling of the Attorney General, (July 1, 1906) that in the absence of any expression in the Commitment as to when the term of imprisonment shall begin, that is be construed to begin on the day of arrival at the Penitentiary, the time as figured from the date of sentence.

Having been sentenced Nov. 27th., 1906 for (4) four years, his full time would expire Nov. 26th., 1910. His good time term, Dec. 25th., 1909.

As to the $10.00, fine will say that as the prisoner was not commited by the Court, this Institution could not hold him for the payment of said fine.

Very respectfully,

Record Clerk

Whooping Cough and Diphtheria shots (Gladys)

Dear Daddy – No letters this week so far and this is Thurs. Maybe a bunch will come yet this week like they do at times. It is sunny and warm today so think I’ll get some yard and garden work done. I am dividing some of the thicker spirea bushes and filling in where the weaker ones haven’t done so good – and with the help of Mark – I am doing same. I will have to get someone to help with taking down storm windows – that I believe is out of my reach – Took David to Dr. M. yesterday and got his first shot for whooping C. & Diphtheria. He didn’t even cry so I won’t dread the next one as much as this one. He has been good today so it isn’t making him sick. I will have some snapshots to send out tomorrow. There are two of Joe Robert Hiestand Pauline gave me to send. There should be some good ones of D. in this last roll I took. – – – Mark is in the Jr. band concert this evening and I am going. He is so excited over it – he is to play a solo part. I am anxious to see how he gets along. – You remember the medicine Charles Molter got while you were home last? I saved the rest of those pills for him and he came yesterday and got them – small green & large Pink. He said he had felt pretty good all winter. One of his girls was sick the night before and they were afraid of appendicitis – and wishing you were here. Marjory Wilson’s husband has been sent where you were before. I think he is an ensign. Marjory works part time in the factory now.
