1864 Oct. 18 Commendation for Stephen Slane from 1st Lt. H.T. Gutherie

One-page recommendation written in ink on folded sheet of paper, from HT Gutherie, 1st Lieut, Battery “L” 1st Reg, Ohio Light Artillery for Stephan Slane to whom it may concern.

Near Cedar Creek, VA
October 18th 1864

To whom it may concern-

The bearer hereof, Stephan Slane, for the past (16) sixteen months 1st Sergeant of Battery “L”, 1st Reg., Ohio Light Artillery, having been discharged today on account of expiration of service. Being about to return to civil life again, I take pleasure in recommending him as a very capable and energetic man. He has always performed the duties of his office with ability and credit to himself & battery.

His integrity is undoubted. I have no doubt but his service will be advantageous in any capacity they may be used.

H.T. Gutherie, 1st Lieut.
