Springfield July 1861

Hon. S. Cameron

As directed by you I have accepted another Regiment of 12 Companies of Cavalry. They are ready to march. Shall I rendezvous them for being mustered into service? Ten additional companies are also offered. Will you accept them?

Two of the four Artillery Companies raised by the State have not yet been mustered into the service. Can they be mustered in?
