IV. All refugees, both white and black, in the command will be organized into detachments under the direction of Captain George A. Henry, provost-marshal at these headquarters. He will cause them, when so organized, to report to Major Frank C. Geillette, provost-marshal of the corps.

Major-General HAZEN,

Commanding Second Division:

GENERAL: At the suggestion of Major-General Howard the general commanding requests that you will perfect the organization of your refugees into detachments, in order that the first opportunity offering may be seized to send them to Wilmington. We may be able to ship them, but fear that they will have to march.

Respectfully, your obedient servant,
