October 15, 1918. Dr. James L. Kent, Pulaski, Va. My dear Dr. Kent:- I have your letter, and beg to advise you that I have referred the matter to the Adjutant General, and he will relieve you as soon as it is possible to do so. I hope he will be able to write you at once upon the subject. I quite understand your position and desire to expedite you in every way possible in your laudable desire for active service. Yours very truly, [illegible] Governor.
