Gov Yates

Dear Sir

Yours of the 11th inst is received. In answer to your letter I desire to say that I believe I recognize and fully appreciate the services you have rendered the state and the Union Cause.

You have been correctly informed that "I am friendly to you."

I have not made any promise to any person and think I shall not.

But when the time comes I hope I may be able to act rightly and to the satisfaction of my friends.

I do not fear any estrangement from you in consequence of my action in that matter

Respectfully your friend

H. Noble

P.S. You did not say if a Brevet commission could be obtained for Col Laughlin of the 94th Ill Infr

Jack -- See as to getting the former letter on the subject of this Brevet
