in this position, Capt Saml. J. Wright. AQM & D.O. in giving me instructions, informed me that it was unnecessary to make application to be furnished with Oil & Candles to purchase in Liberty & forward account for same monthly & it would be paid. Predicating on that, I of course never thought it necessary to make any further application on the matter. Heretofore all my a/cs for Oil & Candles have been paid. I have never purchased a single item without first making application in writing or verbally & receiving permission with one exception the Tongs & Shovel. I suppose I've used thirty pound of Candles the past month, now must I perform all this labor & then pay for the Candles to do it by. I could sit here & write all Night. I'll not bore you longer, but will conclude with one request. For God Sake send an Inspecting Officer here, then I do know that the a/c for Oil & Candles will be allowed. I am Dr Sir Very Truly &c A.H. Mayer
