Commanding Right Wing, Army of Georgia :
GENERAL: I have about 1,000 men dismounted, returning from hos-
pital and dismounted camps. I am unable to mount these men.
Horses cannot be procured from the North. Can you assist me by
ordering some of the horses captured on the recent campaign to be
turned over to my quartermaster? Horses in poor condition can be

here, and our stock will build up rapidly.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Brevet Major-General, Commanding Cavalry.
