To Major Genl Schenck 

Dear Sir 

     Permit me to introduce to your acquaintance Doctor A. L. Manning who visits you City for the purpose of obtaining permission to leave his regiment ( 1st E. Shore Maryland) for a few weeks. 

     The Doctor is induced to ask the permission from the fact of the death of his brother-in-law Dr. Edmondson, leaving her life in a condition (?) of health that requires the constant attention of her friends. 

      I am sure he wants not ask it except under the peculiar circumstances arising from the death of his relative. 

Thank (?) 
With much respect,

Henry (?) H. Goldsborough 
Brig General
