Head Quarters Disct West Tenn

MAJ N H MCLEAN

SAINT LOUIS, Mo
SIR

Enclosed herewith find some documents which are intended to bear on the recommendation of Genl Davies

in the cases of Col Crafts J Wright, Lt Col B P Wright 1 & 1st Lt W. Bradford 2 22nd Ohio Vols. I fully endorse the recommendation of Genl Davies. From the day Col Wright first reported to me for duty, to the present time, he has been the cause of more complaints from his immediate commanders than any six officers of this Command. He has constantly raised the question of rank with those immediately over him; (this has even occured on the battle fields, ) and he is constantly raising points and occupying the time of his superior officers with a correspondence, useless to the service and to some extent insubordinate.

Very Respcty
Your Obt Servt
