Memorandum for General Ulio1 or

The Adjutant General [Adams]

January 18, 1941 [Washington, D.C.]

There is a Lieutenant Jones with Company 4480, CCC at Frogmore Hunting Island, South Carolina.2 Will you quietly have his record of service with the CCC checked and let me know your opinion of the man.

I might say that he has asked for nothing, as a matter of fact, he is conspicuous in my mind because he does not want anything. But he came to my attention from his outstandingly efficient work in another camp, and I am always on the lookout for the real performers who are self-effacing.
