I have the honor herewith to tender my resignation as Colonel of the 7th Vermont Veteran Volunteer Infantry.

I would respectfully assign as a reason, that matters of a private nature demand my immediate attention.

I have served in the Army since the outbreak of the war, and waiving all personal and private matters, have devoted myself assidecously to the intrests of the service.

At this stage of the rebellion, I trust I can ask for an honorable discharge, I would therefore respectfully regret the favorable consideration of the Commanding General.

I have the honor to be, Sir,
Very Respectfully,
Your Obdt. Servt.W. C. Holbrook
Col. 7th Vermont Vet. Vols.
