HON. E. B. WASHBURN
WASHINGTON D. C.
DEAR SIR:

Your letter of the 8th inst. addressed to me at Covington Ky. has just reached. —At the time the one was written to which it was is an answer I had leave to go home, or to Covington,

but Gen. Halleck requested me to remain for a few days. Afterwards when I spoke of going he asked that I should remain a little longer if my business was not of pressing importance. As I really had no business, and had not asked leave on such grounds, I told him so and that if my services were required I would not go atal. This settled my leave for the present, and for the war, so long as my services are required I do not wish to leave.

I am exceedingly obliged to you for for the interest you have taken in the appointment recommended by me and also

for the assurances that the Sec. of War receives them with such favor. I will endeavor never to make a recommendation unsafe to acceed to.
