Camp of 33rd Miss. Regmnt. near Enterprise Miss.
Sept. 9th 1863

To S. Cooper Adjt. & Insp. General C. S. A.
Richmond, Va.

Sir:

I herewith tender my resignation as Captain of Company E 33rd Miss Regt. of Infantry, and respectfully refer you to the annexed Surgeons' certificate for the causes which impel me to do so. Asking your favorable consideration of the same.

I am very respectfully &c
John T. Lamkin Capt.
Co. E 33d Miss. Regmnt.

Camp 33rd Miss. Regt. Enterprise Miss.
Sept. 9th 1863

John T. Lamkin Capt. of Co. E 33rd Regt. Miss. Vol. having applied for a Certificate on which to ground an application for a resignation of his office.

I certify that I have carefully examined this officer and find that he has Spinal Irritation in a severe form which render him incapable of performing the duties of his office. He has suffered more or less with this affliction for the past eleven months. During this time he has not been able to perform the duties of his office more than one Month. I further declare it as my belief that he will not recover in any definite time from the fact of his age which is (52) fifty two years, and his weight which is (250) two hundred and fifty pounds. I therefore recommend that his resignation be received.

Andrew McCarty
Asst. Surg. 33rd Miss. Regt. Vol.
