I have received two letters one from Major Lynde the other from Lieutt. Lull, both requesting leave of absence for a few weeks. All applications of that kind ought to be made through the Commanding Officer of the post where they may be.

The season advances so fast that I am extremely anxious to have the result of your enquiry after winter Quarters. After you shall have made the examination heretofore directed, and reported to me, I request that you will direct your enquiry for the same object towards the upper parts of Connecticut River, from Springfield westward.

I have received your letter of the 18. April, and hope that as soon as convenient the nomination of Quarter master and Adjutant to your Regiment may take place. There is no objection to a change in the association of the company officers for good reasons; you will propose therefore such as you may deem proper. The bond of your Pay Master Mr Duncan did not accompany your letter of the 29 April:...
I have received your letter of the second instant explaining the causes of the delay in forwarding pay and muster rolls, and rely on your exertions to produce greater regularity in future. When the articles happen not to be in the possession of the officers who are to make the returns it is proper that they should procure the necessary information without delay by applying to those in whose...

The ultimate...
