Genl Orders
No. 36

II Before a General Court Martial of which Lieut Col. Lewis Ernst 140th Reg. New York Vols. is President convened at Camp of 3rd Brigade 2nd Div. by virtue of Special Orders No. 1 from Hd. Qrs. 2nd Division of July 29nt /63 was arraigned and tried

1st Lieut Morris Kayser Co. "B" 91st Reg. Pa. Vols
Charge 1st Absence without leave
Charge 2nd Positive and wilfull disobedience of orders
Charge 3rd Absence without leave proceedings [sic; 'Absence without leave' seems to be written over something]

The court finds the accused guilty on the three charges and sentences him to forfeit all pay and allowances for the period of two months

Extract II The proceedings, findings, and sentence in the case of Lieut Morris Kayser 91st Reg. Pa. Vols. are approved but the sentence is entirely inadequate to the offense of which he is found guilty. In time of War, wilfull disobedience of Orders merits death; dismissal from the service would be a lenient punishment for such an offence. This Officer is also found guilty of leaving his Regiment and visiting Philadelphia without permission and at a time when the testimony established that the Regiment was on picket duty The inference is that he took advantage of the absence of his Regiment from Camp to commit and [sic] act that he might be found out in, had it been present. The court think [sic] all these offences are amply atoned for by depriving Lieut Kayser of a few dollars. Comment is superfluous.

This Officer will resume his sword and duties
