Stoddard Johnston, assistant adjutant general. Written while Echols was in charge of the District of Southwestern Virginia, it reads in full, "Mr. John C. Bowyer, C.S.

Will you give the permit & forward it to me? I will see it sent to him." Fine condition with original folds, a bit of toning away from the text and mounting tape traces on verso.
