Sir,
In compliance with "Section 5" of " An Act in relation to the Bureau of Military Statistics" passed March 21st, 1864, I have the honor to transmit herewith a History of the Flags belonging to the 59th Reg't N.Y. Vols., deposited with you on the ... day of March last.

In consequence of my inability to find access to the Books and papers of the Reg't, which are now with it in the field, this History will [necessarily] be brief.

Hoping at some future and more convenient time, to be able give you a more like the account.

I remain
Very Respectfully
Your most ob't serv't

Horace P Rugg
