I have the honor respectfully to ask if there are any more vacancies in your Bureau if so, would there be any possibility of my being detailed. I noticed only 7th Batt Officers of the V.R.C. were ordered to report to you, have been since Nov. 1863. in command of 2nd Batt. Co's of the V.R.C. Would also state that I have been awaiting orders at this place since Dec 1865. If my services are required, how. and to whom should I apply. for the favor.
Very Respy Your Obt Servt
