Hon W.W. Halfyard “Col Sect.”

Dear Sir

I want to know if you made any arrangement with the Minister of Militia to see if there is any chance to get my son home before next summer as it is the only support I got with a family of five and I got a compliant that keeps me from work sometimes as I told you before I lost my summer last year and if I don’t get my son home next summer I will lost my summer this year and there will be something’s doing next fall. There is lot of young men home here that got exemption and more that did not respond to the “Country’s Call” and they had no reason for staying home as my son, I need him very bad please show this to J.G. Stone and try and get him home. By doing so you will

Oblige your friend
Reuben George
