and returns forward to you have been made up. as I am informed, from the latest data received here, but this method cannot fail to give an incorrect showing of the condition of the command. The reports used here as a basis for reports to you are in some instance many weeks and even months old.

The frequent and urgent calls made upon these detached troops for their regular reports have been disregarded under color of authority from department headquarters. I desire, therefore, to be specifically informed whether I am to consider the organizations mentioned above as only temporarily separated from the corps, and whether or not I shall enforce the rendition of their regular reposts and returns. As an additional illustration of the embarrassments under which we labor, I inclose a copy of a communication received this day from Brigadier General M. K. Lawler. It is desirable that all orders changing the organization of the corps, detaching or separating troops from it, or changing the station of any part of it should be made through the headquarters, so that I may be enabled to keep the run of it in these respects. The tri-monthly for the 10th instant has been corrected by Major-General Ord, and is herewith inclosed.

I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JOHN A. McCLERNAMD,

Major-General, Commanding Thirteenth Army Corps.
