In reply to the inquiry of this day concerning the two men of this Regiment against whom charges have been preferred.

I have the honor to state that Burkett is under charge of the Provost Marshall Guard and has been since his arrest. [Since Charles Burkett was tried by court martial in December 1863, he is the Burkett, and not Elias Burkett]

Hood [presumably James Hood, co H] was also under charge of the Provost Guard until ordered by the Doctor to the Regiment on account of Sickness neither have done duty since their arrest.

I am Captain &c.

Upon a thorough inspection 5 days rations are now in the Haversacks and Knapsacks of the men having a deficiency of 3 days this deficiency was caused partly by exposure to bad weather during the march from Culpepper + other unavoidable circumstances resulting from loss in carrying the rations in their Haversacks + Knapsacks.
