Head Quarters Enrolled Militia
Howard and Randolph Counties
Glasgow W Aug 25, 1862.
Jno. L. Hicks Esq
Chief Commissary
Howard County
Dear Sir:
If you have not appointed a Sub-Commissary for Prairie Township, I beg to suggest for our consideration the name of James Humphreys of Roanoke for that position. I know him to be competent, & to possess honesty and integrity, and I do not think a better appointment for that Township can be made.
Your Obt Servant
Th J Bartholow
Col Commanding
