Col. Sharpe

Sir, I take this opportunity in writing in regards to the past incident regarding the hens, the corn, and the beef that the Home Guard took from me and I can not get the pay without order from you. They paid for the Beef but would not pay for anything else. You will please do so and order payment so that they may do so. I am respectfully,

Daniel
