Tumblety as Surgeon General?

Post by Karen on Sat 4 Feb 2012 - 13:03

How Dr. Tumblety Obtained an Appointment.

The recent allusion by the Buffalo papers to Dr. Tumblety as having been appointed Surgeon General upon the staff of General McClellan, and the reference thereto in these columns has brought us some information which may be interesting to the public. A citizen who has lately been in Washington, and who is acquainted with Tumblety and conversed with him there, states that Tumblety told him that he was to have an important position in the army, but he had not received his commission. - Tumblety stated that he made favor with President Lincoln through his son Robert. He met Robert last summer at a watering place and found him with a sprained ankle. He attended to him so well that Bob took him under his patronage and gave him letters to his father and others at Washington in authority. We are not quite sure that Mrs. Lincoln interceded on behalf of Tumblety, but as she is reported to have a hand in some of the queer moves that are made, it would not be strange if she was concerned in this. We have yet some doubt about Tumblety being at the head of the surgical staff, but we have none whatever about his holding some position under the government. - Rochester Advertiser.
