My Dear Sir

I am in receipt of your and in reply would inform you that I have made every effort that possibly could be made to have this Regt sent back to Mo I am in receipt of a communication from the Sect of war informing me that it is impracticable to send this Regt to Mo until their time is out I would further State that I have been ordered by Maj. Gen Thomas to Report to Gen. Dodge in St. Louis But will Remain with the Regt and continue to use my efforts to get the Regt away from here In Regard to stocking arms &C &C I can hardly believe that men will be so rash as to commit acts that will subject them to imprisonment during the war which would be the inevitable result and while I command the Regt such shall not be the case or If it should ocur the severrst Penalites of Military law will be inflicted It is well Known that the Goverment has in every single Instance acted justly and honorably with her soldiers and musters them out promptly as soon as it was at all practicable and It will be done in this case

Your Obet Sevt
