Ogden in behalf of the members of the Mess & other Officers of this Post a communication requesting that the services of our man may be allowed the Mess as an attendant, for which he is to receive a compensation equivalent to extra pay…I have thought proper to refer the application to the General in Chief hoping that it may meet with a favourable decision." In fine condition, with a stain to the left edge, and light show-through along the top edge from some old mounting tape on the back.
