Dear Governor

The letter you have written places the subject so clear a light that I cannot suggest any alteration further than to say that Col [Hovey?] of Ind and Col Palmer of Illinois were acting Brigadiers under my command while I commanded the Division and they have both been [promoted?] by the President while I have been overlooked.


Col. Thos. J. Turner

April 3rd

Thanking for letter in regard to Brig.ship
