Davis, assistant quartermaster, was absent form the post and I was unable to obtain a report from his office. The list of detailed men from Dr. Fauntleroy's office was sent back to know by what authority he employed a mail carrier not connected with the army, and the rate of compensation. The list was not returned, although I made strenuous efforts to get it, up to the time of making out my report.
I have adhered as strictly as possible to the requirements of special instructions and the instructions of General Bragg, in my inspections,
