I very respectfully represent to the commander of the 1st & 3d military Deparments, to be refered to the commander of the Eastern Division, the injustice which I immagine has been done me by ordering me from Detroit to this Post. I am Regimental Quarter Master, and have been, since the first creation of that appointment.
Owing to the scarsity of officers at this Post it might not appear as such manifest injustice were it not taken into account that another officer (Lt. H. D. Wallen) whos proper Company was at Madison Bck's at the time, was retained at Detroit to fill the proper duties of my office.
