Ho was my commander only dining Iho last two weeks ol Hie active wort ot the war. I cannot be mistaken as to tin substantial and sterling elements of hi : haractor.

Ills icpoit Is exhaustive and cdmpichenslvp. Among many other tilings It states : "The change pioposed is trom the single bnttallon now composing a icgliuent to a regimental line ol thiecbaltallons , placing an Infantry rcglmcnl on the name footing with a regiment ol cavalry or aitillcry In the matter of it' organisation. " The effect of this would be to relieve the stagnation In piomotlon that now oxlsts In the Infanlry arm , which tend' to apathy and Inefficiency.
