Farnham8-20-1863Dear Sir,

I have the pleasure to acknowledged the receipt of the monthly return of the 16th Me Vols. for the month of July 1863. About 200 conscripts have left the date for your command which detachment has I presume matched the regiment to this. I hope more will soon follow which with the exchange of the gallant officers and men now in the hands of the enemy may restore the brave 16th to the former standard of strength.
