Lieutenant-Colonel, Commanding Ninth Florida.
HEADQUARTERS FINEGAN'S BRIGADE, January 23, 1865.
Respectfully forwarded for information of the commanding general.
The same discontent, resulting from the same causes, prevails to some extent throughout the brigade, and is, I think, one of the main causes of the large number of desertions form the command recently.
Colonel, Commanding Brigade.
