Editorial Note on the Texas Mapping Expedition

June-September 1905

While his letter of August 31 bounced back and forth between Southwestern Division headquarters in Oklahoma City and Texas Department headquarters in San Antonio, Marshall became incensed at the “dyed-in-the-wool spirit of the commissary staff." (Marshall to Major General G. V. H. Moseley, September 9, 1938, GCMRL/G. C. Marshall Papers [Pentagon Office, Selected].) Hardly had he completed “the hardest service I ever had in the army” (Marshall Interviews, p. 144), when his honor seemed to have been impugned. The following is Marshall’s handwritten tenth indorsement to his own letter (Papers of George Catlett Marshall, #1-028 [1: 33-34]).

Recommended Citation: The Papers of George Catlett Marshall, ed. Larry I. Bland and Sharon Ritenour Stevens (Lexington, Va.: The George C. Marshall Foundation, 1981- ). Electronic version based on The Papers of George Catlett Marshall, vol. 1, “The Soldierly Spirit,” December 1880-June 1939 (Baltimore and London: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1981), p. 32.
