the service they expect of us and if ever Attacked I have no doubt nor hesitation in saying we will render a good account of the enemy -

I have some such men and no Surgeon or Doctor has as yet been appointed I think Sir that as an Odd battalion which we certainly are I am intitled by the laws of my state to a staff should you concur Sir in that opinion please to let me know where I am to Obtain Hospital Stores and whether I can all for a Surgeon from Any Regr. or appoint one -- Medical Aid must be had here imediately and I felt reluctant To send for a surgeon or assistant Surgeon unless Special Orders to that purpose as I know I must Cost the USA (State of Ohio) Considerable more than to have one stationed here which was regularly appointed but the situation of the men will admit but of little delay as they stand in imediate need of Medical aid and the allow- ance of a Quarter Master & Adjut would be of great service to me -- parti- cular at this time as the Officers and men have a great deal to learn but in Justice to both I must say that they perform their dutys much better than I expected -

Excuse this unconected letter as I am allmost worn down with fatigue and laying in the Open Air as is the Case throughout the Camp the block house only Sufficing for a few men -- but as soon as Axes teams and your Orders can Arrive I shall commence fortifying with all possibly alacrity

I am Sir Most respectfully Yours
