Inspector General and Acting Quartermaster General, and of Commander Emerson, Commanding the First Naval Battalion, for their faithful and efficient work during the late war and throughout the whole of this State administration.
I must express my appreciation for the invariable courtesy and consideration shown me by the officers of the War Department and all other Army officers with whom I was brought in contact during my limited tour of special duty.
In conclusion, I beg leave to submit the two following recommendations as to amendments of the Militia Law:
(1.) In order that officers who have long and faithfully served the State may retain their rank and their uniforms without being required to perform active duty, except in certain emergencies and within the limit of their ability, and that all doubt as to the retiring of officers shall be removed, I respectfully recommend that amendment to the law be made providing for the retirement of such officers upon their application.
(2.) As there is present provision in the Militia Law by which enlisted men may be honorably discharged upon application and dishonorably discharged after court-martial, I respectfully recommend that further provision be made for the discharge of enlisted men "for the good of the service.”
As I am about to resign the office of Adjutant General to accept an office conferred upon me by the suffrages of the people of my county, I desire to thank the present Governor for the confidence implied in his original appointment of me as Adjutant General, and in his subsequent special commission to me as Commanding Officer and his representative during the late war.
And being thus about to sever relation with the military establishment of the State, which commenced in eighteen hundred and seventy-seven, I beg leave, through this communication, to express my steadfast regard and lasting good will for the officers and men of the Maryland National Guard, earnestly hoping that they may remain loyal to their State and to their organization, and that they may always endeavor to maintain a high standard of discipline and efficiency.
Adjutant General of Maryland.
