OFFICE COMMISSARY-GENERAL OF PRISONERS,

New York City, January 17, 1862.

Dr. C. A. FINLEY,

Surgeon-General U. S. Army, Washington, D. C.

SIR: I am authorized by the Adjutant-General to emply a private physician to attend the troops and prisoners at the depot of prisoners of war near Sandusky, ansd as it will take some time to find a suitable person I respectfully request in order to avoid inconvenient delay that Surg. R. S. Satterlee, medical purveryor in this city, may be directed to furnish such medicines and hospital stores for the depot as he may deem requisite for a command of 1,000 men for six months, viz, two companies of a hundred men each with nine commissioned officers and 600 to 800 prisoners. The location is healthy and I don't apprehend much sickness.

The physician who attends the depot must live on the island and I doubt if any competent person can be found to accept the place on the compensation which the Regulations allow, $80 per month, without any other allowance whatever, not even fuel and quarters.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

W. HOFFMAN,

Lieutenant Colonel Eighth Infantry, Commissary-General of Prisoners.
