SHREVEPORT, August 25, 1864.

Major-General PRICE:

MY DEAR GENERAL: General Magruder will be detained here several days. He says he would like very much to see you, but that you will not be delayed on this account. He hopes and expects that he will have the benefit of your views on Arkansas affairs, either addressed to him or General Smith. Last night General Magruder told me he had brought his paymaster with him, and I am, surprised to learn this moment that I have been ordered to be assigned as paymaster of the District of Arkansas. I have had no interview with him or General Smith since, and was talking with chief quartermaster of the department about a temporary assignment to some other duty.

Again expressing me earnest wishes for the success of your expedition, and prayers for your personal prosperity,

I am, most cordially, your friend,

E. C. CABELL.

P. S.- Leave memorandum of such things as you wish me to attend to for you.

E. C. C.
