To Richard Yates

Corinth Mississippi
August 15th 1862

HIS EXCELLENCY
HON. RICHARD YATES
Gov. OF ILLINOIS.
DEAR SIR,

In the large increase of forces now being put in the field allow me to recommend Capt. H. C. Freeman, 1 Aid to Gen. McClernan and Engineer officer to his command, as a suitable person for an appointment to a Field officer.

The regiment that gets him will be fortunate in having the services of an able and efficient officer of one years valuable and conspicuous service against this rebellion.

I recommend Capt. Freeman, a citizen of Southern Illinois, without fear of his future course disappointing me, or yourself, should you act favorably on this recommendation.

I am Governor very respectfully
your obt. svt.
U. S. GRANT
Maj. Gen

ALS (facsimile), Yates Papers, IHi.
