Memoranda on arrest of Thomas James Martin, Washington D.C.

Thomas James Martin.-Born in King George or Westmoreland County, Va. Has lived at his mothers in Washington. Says he is a kind of sailor; sailed in Chesapeake Bay, and made a voyage from Baltimore to Rio Janeiro. Says this summer he has been out of employment. Came down to his brother's in King George. Started to go to Washingtou two or three times and was turned back by our pickets. Fourth time he was arrested. I think this man's intellect is unsettled. He is badly clad, and seems to be suffering for want of clothing. He is not a suitable person to be permitted to go at large about our lines. I recommend he be held as a prisoner until it is ascertained whether he is deranged, and then some humane disposition be made of him.
