Captain JOHN F. LACEY,
Assistant Adjutant-General, Barrancas, Fla.:
CAPTAIN: I have the honor to state that if two more companies of the Second Maine Cavalry can be spared from Barrancas it will, in my opinion, be a benefit to the service to have them here. It is necessary to have a cavalry picket on the main road leading out from here and men are required daily as escorts to Barrancas and back for teams, &c. The escort that went down to Barrancas yesterday for ambulances has not returned and it is necessary to send another this morning to that place. I desired to-day to go out to reconnoiter the roads, but have not a sufficient escort.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
C. C. ANDREWS,
HDQRS. SIXTEENTH ARMY CORPS, Numbers 22.
Dauphin Island, Ala., March 18, 1865.
