The State of Ohio Executive Department, Columbus, July 7, 1862. To the officers and soldiers of the volunteer force of Ohio: Well knowing the generosity, as well as the patriotism and bravery, of the gallant boys of Ohio, now fighting for Constitutional Liberty, the Legislature of our State has recently passed a law directing the State Treasurer to receive all money any of you may wish to send to your mothers, wives, sweethearts, or friends, and to pay the same to them through the Country Treasurers, free of expense. To aid you in transmitting the money saftely, I have this day appointed A. R. Lyman, Payagent to accompany the Paymaster and receive from you all such sums as you may wish to send home. You can, therefore, with perfect confidence, hand over to this Agent any sums you may see proper, taking his receipt therefor, and I pledge you the faith of the State, that all such sums shall saftely reach their destination. [David Tod] Governor.
