The services of Colonel E. Martindale, Eighty-first U. S. Colored Troops, are believed to have been of great value during the rebellion. Although not having served under my immediate command I think that his claims for promotion should be consider. I therefore respectfully recommend, if it meets the views of the major-general commanding, that he be nominated for promotion by brevet to the rank of brigadier-general.

I respectfully invite the attention of the major-general commanding to the letter of Colonel James Shaw, jr., of April 20, 1865, advocating the promotion of Surg. C. P. Heichhold, Eighth U. S. Colored Troops, and to my own indorsement of May 2, 1865, on that letter, which is herewith inclosed.

I am, major, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

R. H. JACKSON,

Brevet Brigadier-General, U. S. Volunteers, Commanding.
