Item Description
Letter from Charles Young to Adjutant General, U.S. Army
					Wilberforce, Ohio.
					August 14, 1917.

From: 	Charles Young, Col. U.S. Army.

To:	Adjutant General, U.S. Army.

Subject: 	Orders for duty.

1. By permission of the Adjutant General of Ohio, to whom 
I was ordered to report, I am at my home at Wilberforce, Ohio, awaiting 
his official information that my mission in this State expired with his 
notification by the War Department that the Regiment of Colored Cavalry, 
which it was desired that I should command, was not needed.

To date I have received no further information from him, 
but as the last National Guard element of this State has been mustered 
into the U.S. Service, I deem it my duty to notify you that my services 
are not being utilized, thinking that perhaps they might be needed on 
some other duty, possibly in the mobilization and training of drafted 
Colored men of the National Army.

2. Until I receive further orders I shall await here the 
convenience of the Government.

Chas. Young.
