July 16. 1863

Dear Sir

I wrote you some days ago and have since then a letter from Mrs. Reeder in which she speaks of your having paid my taxes to save the percentage.  This of course was very desirable to me and I am obliged to you.  I send you enclosed a blank check which you can fill for whatever amount is necessary and if you need more let me know.  There is a percentage allowed I think on all the taxes.  At least on State Courts & [brought] is not on School tax and I should like to pay all.  Upon which that is any thing to be saved.

We have had no regular mail here since we break in the Rail Road near Annap. Junction on Monday – Tuesday night we had Mondays N.Y.

and Phila. Papers and last night we had Tuesdays papers.  The road is not yet repaired and there is a [XXXX] or wagoned of abt 2 miles[.]

The matter of our Commission is now made public, the [Surg] Genl. having notified on Monday.  The third man has not yet arrived, but Maj Brastow and myself have been at [XXXX]  visiting the Hospitals & other places and examining the stores and doing all that we [can] do in the absence of Judge Wood[.]

I should be glad to hear how [XXX]  and Tom McKeen get along.

Resp Yours

A.H. Reeder.

Willards Hotel
