To Nathan Rice

New York Augt. 22. 99.


I have received a letter from Cn. Ashmun1 of your regiment in which he informs me that he has sent Samuel Woolcott, a deserter from the first regiment of Artillerists to the commanding officer of the district at Springfield. You will immediately send this deserter under the guard of a corporal and file of men to Major Tousarde2 at Rhode Island.

With great consideration
