Head Quarters 91st Reg Pa. Vols

Forwarded by mail Aug 5th 1864

Asst. Adjt. Genl

I have the honor to furnish the following information in the case of A. J. Hill Co. "B" 91st Pa. Vols.

This young man enlisted in the Regiment as a Musician March 1864. He was admited [sic] in the Hospital as a patient on or about May 20th 1864; was returned to duty with his regiment July 15nt 1864. His career as a Soldier in the Field is short. The Surgeon reports that his General health does not indicate that he is unable to stand the service, but on the contrary. I believe that a recruit passing through the campaign of the last 90 days without any serious results can stand the fatigue of any duty in [sic] which he may be called upon to perform as a Musician The enclosed papers are herewith returned

I am Major Very Respectfully
Your Obdt Servt
