My Dr Sir

Your favor of the 15th is before me – I am much obliged for the copies of orders [illegible]. I suppose you have had sent you some 200 conscripts, which will prevent your being relieved from service as you requested – your Regt being in the first Army Corps is the first to be recruited with conscripts – hope you will be able to get get at least an other 200, which I think you will – altho the draft will not give to exceed 315,4000 conscripts – In the mean time remain.
