HDQRS. DEPARTMENT OF WASHINGTON, 22nd ARMY CORPS,

January 7,. 1865.

General FORSYTH,

Chief of Staff, Headquarters Middle Military Division:

They do now and always have procured nearly all their forage and beef from Loudoun County. One man has a permit from Treasury Department to bring in supplies, from that county below Seneca. This, I should suppose, would not interfere with Devin; if it is though it will I can have it stopped by applying to Treasury Department.
