CHARLESTON, April 16, 1864.

General S. COOPER,

Adjutant and Inspector General:

Owing to reduction of forces, I will leave this department with great concern, which would be much diminished if General Hill were ordered to relieve me, for since his arrival here he has been making himself acquainted with the forces and localities. My chief of staff i still quite sick and cannot be a t present of much assistance to General Jones. I am confident a positive order form the War Department would be obeyed with alacrity by General Hill.
