Hd Qrs 1st Bat Lt Artillery. About the 3d of Sept I was ordered to the Army of the Potomac with a portion of my Battalion and required to leave two Companies & a part of my staff at Camp Lee. On my return I learned that the Surgeon & Quarter Master had both been detailed, but no official notice has ever been given me. In view of the above statement I respectfully ask for instructions in reporting these officers.Please see my other items for more interesting Civil War letters, documents, and images.
