Head Quarters 45th P.V.V.

New Alexandria, Va. June 7th, 1865

Sir,

I have the honor respectfully to tender my resignation as Assistant Surgeon of the 45th Pa. Vet. Vols. For the following reasons:

I am anxious to return to my family and private practice, as my wife is in delicate health, and my opportunity for regaining my original practice is at this time very favorable - which opportunity would be lost should I continue longer in the service, and my future success is life seriously affected thereby.

Believing that my services can be dispensed with without detriment to the service, as another medical officer has recently been assigned to the Regiment, I must earnestly and respectfully ask that my resignation meet with your approval.

Very respectfully, Your obedient servant C. E. Iddings Asst Surg 45th P.V.V.

Over

To Bseret Major J. D. Bertolette A. A. Genl 9th A.C.
