HDQRS. GARRISON FOR FORT WADSWORTH, DAK. TER.,
In Camp, near Fort Ridgely, Minn., July 8, 1864.
Captain R. C. OLIN,
Assistant Adjutant-General, District of Minnesota:
SIR: After many unexpected delay I shall have my command in camp at the agency ferry to-morrow night, and shall await the arrival of Captain McKusick, assistant quartermaster, to take up my line of march. While Lieutenant-Colonel Pfaender, commanding this post, has shown a desire to do everything in his power to forward the expedition, I have met with many obstacles which have caused delay. Captain Klatt, commanding Company K, moved up to the ferry on the 7th and found the ferry-boat sunk, but he has raised it and will have the train across to-morrow. On the arrival of Captain McKusick I shall move forward at once.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Major Thirtieth Regiment Wisconsin Volunteers, Commanding.
