I have the honor to submit the following Report in the case of Capt Gilbert. It is true he was placed under arrest on the 16" day of March while the regiment was on review, for disobedience of orders & conduct prejudicial to good order & military discipline. He was tried before the court of which Howard W Prince 20 Me. Vols was judge advocate on the 28" day of the same month since which time his case has not been heard from. He has forwarded his resignation to these Hd Qrs which was returned to him as I did not think that it would be proper to forward it while awaiting the result of the trial

This Officer did absent himself from the regiment without proper authority on or about the 31st day of March and did remain absent until the 23 day of April 1865


I am Colonel &c
