31st Dec., /65.

My dear Mr. McLean,

I was asked yesterday by two or three persons, whom I knew nothing of, to allow the Band to play some 7 or 8 miles off, I refused in consequence of the distance, as the men could not be expected to march that distance. If there is any reason for the Band being sent, and I am asked by any one, whom I know and there is any reason for its going, I would be the last person in the world to refuse it. I shall be happy to allow it to go if carriages are provided and the Instruments can be taken without injury, and I am-asked to send it by any one you may depute to do so, if you think it advisable.

I am,
Sincerely yours,
H. Hamilton.
Colonel & St. Col. 12th Regt.
