Office June 1/66

Dear General

The Bearer, G. Young Esq. is well known to me - and is a reliable gentleman.  Any thing you can do him to enable him to get rations for the poor of his section, I know you will cheerfully do.

Truly yours 
W.P. Chilton

Majr Genl Wager Swayne
My Dr General

At appears our troubles, in regard to destitution, and distribution of food, are not fast coming to a close.  Must be patient, and continue to do.  See what Judge Chilton says above about bearer and here what Esq Young has to say

I Am Maj Vy Truly
