(pounds 1,600) by the shipment of cotton, but, owing to deficient transportation, there are great difficulties experienced in procuring sufficient supplies of cotton for exportation to Nassau to meet the past, as well as future, wants of this department. I have already had a large amount shipped, but probably but little more than sufficient to meet the requisitions for other and indispensable purposes and the obligations already incurred.
In conclusion, I will again state that your action to this date, so far as it is known, is approved by the Bureau, and that every assistance which it is in my power to give will be cheerfully rendered.
