Monticello, Fla. June 28th 1865


Captain,
About the 6th of this month I made application to Genl. Vogdes for a Safe
Conduct to Virginia, etc. and soon thereafter had the pleasure of receiving a
communication from you dated the 11th, in which you informed me that the General had
forwarded it approved to the Department Commander for his action. Since that time I
have not heard more of it, and have thought that in the absence of regular mails, you may
have entrusted it to some passenger or person passing this way, who has failed to deliver
it. I write this for the purpose of enquiring whether it has ever returned from Department
Head Quarters, and if so, whether you have sent it to me, etc.
You will pardon me, Captain, fro manifesting some solicitude for the fate of my
application, since my health, which was poor when I reached Florida a month ago, has
continued to grow worse mainly my physicians tell me, for want of a more bracing
climate.
I am Captain
Very Respectfully
Yr. Obt. Svt.
Patton Anderson
Capt. S.L. McHenry
A.A.G.
Jacksonville, Fla.
