Garnett Family Papers

1/26/1863; Surg. A.Y.P. Garnett is under attack by "persons inimical to me," who have revived old charges of official misconduct which Garnett was acquitted of, and writes to Benjamin to send him the results of his investigation in order to defend himself; 1/28/1863; Benjamin replies to Garnett's request for results of the investigation into Garnett's official misconduct which consisted of treating patients in his private time, accepting funds, and recommending their discharge. Benjamin deemed that he was working very hard "visiting gratuitously the hospital on Main Street near Third" as well as private residences, and was guilty of an error of judgment only. 11/9-11/1863; series of letters between Jefferson Davis and Dr. A.Y.P. Garnett involving a perceived disrespect by Garnett. Very testy at times, regarding Garnett sending Mrs. Davis' "love" to Gen. Wise, and joking with Davis over kissing the girls in Selma. Eventually Garnett talks his way out of it.
