April 29th 1864
Col Geo. W. Logan,
Sir: I find it impossible to do much recruiting, without the assistance of a Guard and therefore I took the liberty of stopping Prvts Sealy and Shaw. I have four more men, and think I will get six or eight more in a few days. You may look for me by the middle of next week with ten recruits. Col. Sam Mayfield’s health is very delicate, and I would like you would let him come back home and recruit until I come to the Command. Capt. Golden is still in Mt. Lebanon unfit for duty.
Your Obdt. Srvt.
