Culpeper March 15th 1862
Dr. S. P. Moore
Sir: I was ordered by the Sec. of War to report myself to you for duty about the first of last September; which I did, and was assigned by you to hospital duty in Leesburg, Va. I have had charge of a hospital in that place up to last Friday when our troops fell back to this point. I now beg leave to report to you for duty, & if you will be so kind as to honor me with any preference in this matter, I would beg to be assigned to duty in Savannah Ga (where I have many friends & relations) or to Lynchburg or Richmond. I studied my profession in the Charity Hospital of New Orleans & feel that I am prepared to render the service more in that department than any other.
Respectfully Your Obt Servant
A. G. Lane, Surg, P. A. C. S.
