I have the honor of transmitting to you a Duplicate Statement of the Hospital Fund at Chimborazo from Octo. 11th 1861 to Jany 1st 1862 the original of which has been forwarded to the Surgeon General in compliance with the Army Regulations.

I am now prepared to exhibit vouchers in support of the various items of said Statement and for that reason, am thus particular in calling your attention to the account. I desire to relieve my self from any pecuniary responsibility that might possibly attach to me by deferring the examination to a distant day, when from the loss or misplacing of important papers, the correctness of the Statement might not so easily verified.

Respectfully
