General R. E. LEE,
Your letter of the 31st received. The condition of the defenses on the north side are very much as they were when I wrote you on the 27th of December last.# Since that time nearly all of my laboring force has been under the charge of your engineer officers, constructing a road in rear of our lines, which road is quite essential for the movement of artillery, &c. I retreat that the road has not yet been completed. The soldiers not occupied on this labor and not necessary on the picket-line
*Captured at Fort Fisher.
