Henry Gantt to John C. R. Taylor

my dear Sir

I was very glad to hear from you that there was a probability of Bennetts being exchanged—I have written to Commissioner Ould & stated to him that Bennett was my Senior Capt & how important it was to the Regt at this time to have his services. I truly hope the exchange may be effected & I assure you when he returns it will give me great pleasure to recommend his promotion

very respectfully
