Lansing, April 24, 1899. Mr. Geo. J. Haller, Ann Arbor, Michigan. Sir: - Your letter of the 22nd mst. asking the status of the Michigan National Gnard and particularly as to the standing of Co.

They have been treated as on indefinite leave of absence. Dieharges have been issued at expiration of term. Service in United States volunteers has not relieved them from service in the Michigan National Guard, but discharges will issue upon application in the usual form.
