55. Camp near Jonesboro Georgia, September 13, 1864; ___ S. Cooper; Adjt and Insp Genl; Richmond Va; Sir, I would respectfully ask that 1st Lieut G. Stewart of Co D. 6th Texas Infantry be dropped from the rolls of Co. D 6th Texas Infantry for the following reasons – He was one of the displaced officers by the consolidation of the 6th, 10th & 15th Texas Regiments and ordered to the Trans Miss Dept in May 1863. He has been home since that time and has no intention of joining his command East of the Miss River. He as written thus to his brother in Co. D 6th Texas Infantry and very recently sent word to 2nd Lieut. P. E. Peareson of same Company that he was not going to return to his command although he had received orders so to do. He stated among other reasons for not doing so that he could not return here and take command over officers who had passed through the trying campaigns of the past fifteen months. I would therefore say that he dropped from the rolls of Co D 6th Texas Infantry for being absent without leave. Very Respy, James Selkirk Capt Co D 6th Texas Infantry

Pearesons Company for Coast defence for the war. Cap Peareson went to Austin expressly to see the Gen and adjt.
