Transcription Notes:
What is that word before "General"? Seems like an abbreviation. Maybe "Ga"? "Respty"- short for "Respectfully" "Obdt" - short for "Obedient" "Servt" - short for "Servant" ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-05-11 11:12:43 ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-05-11 22:17:27 ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-05-11 22:33:00 ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-05-12 19:45:02 ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-05-13 02:43:17 Please do not put unnecessary spacing in the transcription ---------- Reopened for Editing 2024-05-13 03:54:42
