I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of Circular Letter dated "War Department Bureau R. F. and A. L. Washington Aug 8th 1870" in reference to disabled Colored soldiers who are entitled to the benefits of the "National Asylum for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers." Which Circular I had also received from General Whittlesey, and I have acknowledged the receipt to him also.

Yours very respectfully
