Col Fred. T. Locke
I have the honor very respectfully to apply for a Leave of absence for twenty days to visit my Mother in Bangor Maine, who is in extremely feeble and precarious health, and owing to recent deaths in the family, it is very necessary that I should pay her a short visit as soon as possible.
I have not been out of the army for one year.
