Brigadier General E. D. TOWNSEND,

Assistant Adjutant-General, U. S. Army:

GENERAL: I have the honor to request that Lieutenant Colonel J. S. Fullerton, assistant adjutant-general, Fourth Army Corps, be assigned to the Army of the Tennessee, with the rank of lieutenant-clonel, vice Lieutenant Colonel W. T. Clark, assistant adjutant-general, promoted to brigadier-general and assigned to duty commanding a brigade. In case Lieutenant-Colonel Clark is still on the roll as lieutenant-colonel I request that he be removed from his staff appointment. He has commanded a brigade during the entire campaign from Savannah.

Respectfully,

O. O. HOWARD,

Major-General.

P. S. -I have dropped "Department" from my papers, because recent orders have virtually dissolved the Department of the Tennessee, though I have received no official notice that it was broken up. I take it for granted that my assignment by the President to the Army of the Tennessee remains intact.
