Des Moines, Ia., May 16, 1862.

EDITOR GAZETTE – Dear Sir:  I see by your paper that Dr. C. H. Rawson has resigned his commission in the army.  This is an error.  I had a letter from him yesterday, near Corinth.  He has resigned his post as Surgeon of the Iowa 5th, having received the appointment of Brigade Surgeon, and is acting as such to Gen. Hamilton’s Brigade.  He will not resign while the war lasts.

Respct. yours,

– Published in The Davenport Daily Gazette, Davenport, Iowa, Monday Morning, May 19, 1862, p. 1
