Office Army Medical Board, Little Rock, December 28, 1862.
To Surg.-Gen. S. P. Moore, Richmond, Va.
Sir: Your letter of 29th inst. to Medical Director J. M. Haden, reflecting on the medical board, was handed today for perusal.

The only communication ever received from your office to the board was the ‘renewed instructions,’ which arrived within the present week, and the receipt of which I acknowledged per last mail.

The board was organized by Major-General Hindman and was continued by Lieutenant-General Holmes, and we have never examined any surgeon, assistant surgeon or applicant without a permission from the secretary of war or the medical director of the department, and none have ever appeared before the board for examination without a special permit from the secretary of war or medical director.

The standard of examination, instead of being too lax, has been thought by many of the old army surgeons too rigid, considering the available material. Be that as it may, we have conscientiously done our duty to our country and the service.

It is also charged that we have passed men who have been rejected by the board in Mississippi. I have no means of knowing whether it is true or not, but so far as my knowledge extends, I am totally ignorant of it. I have the honor to be, etc.,

P. O. Hooper, President.
