Text of Letter [sic]
March 9th, 1864
I enclose you herewith a letter from a cmr of respectable gentleman of Epworth Dubuque Co., a most loyal spot in a disloyal Co. asking that justices be done them in apportioning the proper quotas for the draft. I called on Major VanCurt in charge of that dept. &he informs me that he will make the credits as may be agreed upon by you &Col Lyon. I think you can easily from the data you have in your office do them justice. I earnestly request that you will do it that Cops. may have their fair chance in the draft.
Very Respectfully Yours,
Wm. B. Allison
Adj Genl of Iowa
