Drab Biei I cannot refrain from convey
ing to you the satis faction which I and other
officers of the sun com derlv from toot
letter of tb 15th ImUnt ppon the subject of
naval rank. Tour view and tb usage of
the array, a set forth in your letter, sustain
all, aad more, than tb naval staff corps
have ever atked.
In forty years' service, and baring been
more or less engaged in all tbe maritime
wars of tbat period. I hsrv never known
anv scheme of staff rank wbkb did not re
cognise the superior rank and precedence of
too commanuioK ameer, na snauer wnai All
rrade. or however accldinlallr h mar have
fallen Into the position of command. Io a
board or medical omeere, which convened
mora than aq&Artei of a century ago, I
wrote myself the provUlon which lua ever
since been associated with every plan of
Btan reus, vis
"That commanding officers, of whatever
grade, shall always take precedence of all
medical officers under their command."
I feel ever r aseoraoce that von do sot do
the staff corps tbe Injustice of thinking
them to be less patriotic or less desirous of
the efficient discipline of the service than
are aoy other das of officers.
Thanking yon for your Just and liberal
views, I have the honor to enclose a copy
