NASHVILLE, May 28, 1865.
Brigadier General H. M. JUDAH,
You are authorized to issue sufficient provisions to the destitute people within your command to prevent starvation. Be cautious, however, that the issue does not become unnecessarily large and an extravagant waste of the public stores, as has been the case generally with such issues.

Raleigh, N. C., May 4, 1865.
In accordance with instructions from Major-General Sherman, commanding Department of the Mississippi the First Alabama Cavalry is relieved from duty in this department, and will march without delay to Knoxville, Tenn., when the commanding officer will report by telegraph to Major-General Thomas, commanding Department of the Cumberland, for further orders.

J. A. CAMPBELL,
I left my regiment this morning at Greeneville marching for this place. I respectfully ask permission to visit Nashville whilst the regiment is moving here, to confer with you personally in regard to the disposition to be made of the regiment, as many of my men are desirous of going home having been driven from their State long ago. I wish also to find a detachment of the regiment which is somewhere in Northern Alabama under Major Shurtleff. Can I come?
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
G. L. GODFREY,
Lieutenant-Colonel, Commanding First Alabama Cavalry.
