Show this to Captain Neill, quartermaster, and let him at once furnish an express ready to take your letter by the near route. If possible, get the postmaster, Mr. Arbogast, to go, and go rapidly and at once.

On arriving at camp, he was handed over to the Commandant of the Post, and gave his name as Abel Chatman, of the 7th Indiana regiment. He appeared to be somewhat alarmed at first, and was anxious to know what would be his fate. He is qroops principally.
