CRAWFORDSVILLE Ia. JUN 10 FREE (black CDS & FREE postmark)

Hon. Henry S. Lane
Rep in Congress
Washington
D.C.

Crawfordsville Ind.
June 9th 1841

Dear Sir

By the mail tomorrow morning I will
forward to the Adjt. Genl. of the Army an
application for the extension of my leave of Absence
for the benefit of my health with the Certificate
of Drs. Fry and Speed as to my inability to
perform duty and the length of time necessary for my
recovery. My Father informed that he wrote to
You on the 7th Inst. and requested You to call
at the Office of the Sect. of War and make Sworn
the character of the Offic physicians making the
Certificates and such other representations are acted
upon I believe in the office of the Adjt Genl
and not in that of Secy of War as my Father
supposed. Will You have the Kindness then to
call at the Adjt. Genl Office and make the
representations requested by my Father. As my
present leave expires on the 20th of this month
You will oblige as much by doing this at your
earliest convenience, as the Application will pro-
bably be acted upon as soon as it is received

We were detained in Kentucky on account of
Louisa´s sickness between 5 & 6 weeks and did not
much this place until a few days ago. We met
Mrs. Lane in Indianapolis as we passed through
She is now expected home. Your other friends are
generally well. Louisa´s health has improved
much Since her arrival at home. She sends her
love - & wished you to become acquainted with
Mr Levy the delegate elect from Florida

Very Respectfully
Yours Os
E. R. S. Canby
