"Respectfully returned. This action is entirely a military one wherein there is no civil process. I do not wish it to be understood that I refuse to obey a writ of "Habeas Corpus" but I for the present decline obeying this writ until I hear from my immediate Commander General Reynolds and I therefore respectfully request that a copy or that this same writ be furnished or returned to me, to forward to Maj Genl Reynolds.
