I have the honor to make the following report in pursuance of instructions relative to the absence of Morris Kayse[r] 1st Lieut Co. "B" from his Company

On the 2nd day of July 1863 when near Gettysburg Pa I gave Lieut Kayser a pass to fall back to the rear of the regiment in consequence of Sickness the enclosed statement of Surg. Knight gives the nature of his disease. he rejoined the command at Purcerville [?] Va. on the 19th of July. I gave him no permission to go beyond the limits of the command and his absence in Washington was without my knowledge or authority

Very Respectfully
Your Obedient Servant
