Assistant Adjutant-General.

NASHVILLE, July 6, 1865.

General WILSON:

Stoneman has taken Alexander of his staff as chief of staff. I fully appreciate General Winslow's services in repairing the railroad. It is best, however, that as long as it is used as a military road that it should be under the control of the railroad management.
