Some of you are absent with passes from person
who bad no authority to grant such passes.
Some are absent an recruiting officers for othr
regiments, with a promise of promotion. Other
are acting as officers in other regiments without
having been commissioned, under the impression
that a certificate of appointment is equivalent to a
promotion. In this you are mistaken. Such cer
tificates are worthless, and you will be considered m '
deserters until you are'eommissioned and regularly

Nothing affords me more pleasure than to pro

and I take pride in recommending them for promo
