Letter of recommendation from A. T. Cassell, Officer in Charge of Construction, Aviation Repair Depot No. 3, Montgomery, Alabama, to "Whom It May Concern", 1918 September 7.

"Mr. Matthews has acted in the capacity of Chief Field Auditor, for the Government forces, at this Field since the starting of construction work. For the past two months he has also acted in the same capacity on the completion of construction work at Taylor Field. Due to a lack of organization on the Contractor's part Mr. Matthews' work has been of a most exacting and difficult nature. His ability and the constant attention he has given to his work, at this Field, and the results which he has obtained have shown him to be the most invaluable man for any similar position. This office takes great pleasure in recommending Mr. Matthews and wishing him success in any position which he may be called on to fill".

The correspondence in this collection deals mainly with Mr. Matthews’ dealings as a civilian employee government auditor and efforts by himself and others close to him, to secure Matthews a commission as a government auditor.
