Samuel D. Bowker Transcript

New Market, N.H.
April 18th 1863

Mr. J.L. Hodsdon

Dear Sir -

The Commission from the Governor forwarded by you was received here some ten days since. Please express my thanks to the Governor for his kindness.  I shall however be under the necessity of declining the appointment as I have just obligated myself to labor here for the year to come.  This with other considerations has rendered such a course imperative. I shall endeavor to support the government, however by all the means in my power.

Very truly, S. D. Bowker
