Camp Duncan June [12?]

Hon. R. Yates

Dear Sir,

Permit me to say that Dr R. Newman herein recommended to you as Steward for the Hospital of this Regiment, is a son of Rev. Windgate Newman of Franklin Ill.

And as his father is a Democrat in politics, I think this appointment would have a tendency to exonerate from any thing like partizan favoriteism -

Your family are well & things move off pleasantly at Camp Duncan.

Most respectfully yours -

Wm J. Rutledge
