Lieutenant Colonel Kreutzer

The bearer Mr. G. W. Hill is desirous of complying with existing order, in reference to soldiers, who are connected with the Confederate Army. Mr. Hill has not been discharged from the CSA but has been absent since last January on sick leave, and is now anxious to take the oath or parole. My camp and headquarters are adjoining Mr. Hill’s residence and I have found him in all cases since my acquaintance with him peaceable and law abiding to the laws of the Union Army.

Very Respectfully
Your Obedient Servant
Samuel I. Given
Captain Commanding Sharpshooters
3rd Division, 24th Army Corps

Lieutenant Colonel Kreutzer
Assistant Provost Marshal
