Lieut W.H. Williams
A.A.A.G. Western Dist - Miss


I have the honor to request that 2nd Lieut M.E. Shuck "F" Co 64th  U.S.C.I. now on duty in the Bureau of Freedmen [[vc.]], be returned to his Company for the following reasoning
My Company is very much scattered guarding Gov't property, and the interests of the Govt will suffer if they are not closely looked after, and often visited. My health at present is not good, unless it improves which it is not likely to do this time of the year at this place. I will not be able to attend to the duties of the Post & Company, and make the returns in the proper time.

Respectfully Yours
Thos P. Anderson
Capt Com'g Post
