Colonel, 
I have the honor to state that this, my semi-monthly Report of the Condition of Freedmen & Operations of the Freedmen's Bureau presents little of interest.
No Contracts have been made 
No change in rate of Wages.

The Freedmen are generally busy gathering the Cotton Crop. Fewer vagrants are seen, as Planters pay from .50¢ to 75¢ per 100 lbs Cotton picked, which is a powerful inducement for all to work

Considerable inquiry is made for the "Bureau Form of Labor Contracts.

I have the honor to be Colonel
Very Respectfully

Transcription Notes:
Thomas H Hay is the Capt VRC Bvt Maj USC Asst Supt - sometimes his signature looks like Tho H Hay, others like Ths H Hay. But it is definitely him. I have sent an email to ask which abbreviation we should use, but they haven't returned a message.
