N.R. Smith regarding Dr. Anthony L. Manning

(Collection of Karen Nicholson, Arlington, VA)


Balto August 10th 1862

This is to certify that Doct A. L. Manning was an infirmary student some ten years ago, and that, he discharged his duty in a most sober, attentive, satisfactory, and masterly manner; and that I take great pleasure in recommending him as one of the most prompt practical young men I ever met with
