XXII. REPORT OF CAPTAIN AND BREVET MAJOR JOHN A. SAULSBURY, TENTH REGIMENT VERMONT VOLUNTEERS

Rutland, Vt., July 10, 1865.

Peter T. Washburn,
Adjutant and Inspector General.

General:--I have the honor to report, that on the 22d of June, 1865, 14 officers and 136 men of the 10th Vt. Vols. were transferred to the 5th Vt. Regiment, and 13 officers and 451 men were mustered out of the service. I left Washington, June 23d, at noon, for Burlington, Vt., in command of the 10th Vt. Regt.; arrived in New York, Saturday the 24th, at 8 o'clock evening, where we were met by Col. Frank E. Howe, and remained over night. At noon, the 25th, we took passage on the Mary Benton, and arrived in Albany at half past 3 o'clock Monday morning, June 26th, where we were well received. We left Albany at 12.45 the same day and arrived in Burlington at 2 o'clock Tuesday morning, where we had a pleasant reception. The men were furloughed until July 3d, when they returned, and were paid off by Major Wadleigh. Officers and men on the route behaved admirably, and won great commendation.

I am, General, with great respect,
Your ob't serv't,
MAJOR J. A. SAULSBURY.
