[Lieutenant Colonel H. C. RODGERS:]

COLONEL: I have the honor to report that in compliance with previous instructions my command has been preparing for the coming campaign, with the following success: All the divisions are wanting in ammunition, which they will be able to procure probably by to-morrow evening. All the divisions are still deficient in clothing, but expecting it daily. My quartermaster reports but two day's forage in the corps, and is informed that the forage intended to fill up our trains cannot be gotten to-night; that it is on transports on the river and may be expected at any time. The corps cannot move to-morrow as expected, without great inconvenience arising from leaving these things behind. Please lay this report without delay before the general commanding the wing for his information and instructions.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JEF. C. DAVIS,

Brevet Major-General, Commanding.
