SPRINGFIELD, ILL., June 15, 1863.

Colonel J. B. FRY,

Provost-Marshal-General:

Am pushing the work in all its branches as rapidly as possible. Delay is caused chiefly for want of some of the blanks. Please have complete sets forwarded soon as possible. Have one inspector out. Will send another in a few days. Would suggest that district provost-marshals be immediately instructed to call attention by advertising in local papers and by posters to Invalid Corps.

JAS. OAKES,

Acting Assistant Provost-Marshal-General.

INDIANAPOLIS, June 15, 1863.

Colonel J. B. FRY:

Everything possible is being done. I have had no officers to assist me until within the last few days. Now have three, two of whom reported yesterday. I visited the headquarters of seven of the districts personally, and an inspecting officer is now visiting the others. No blanks for Invalid Corps were received until Saturday. No time shall be lost. Would like to have Colonel Dunham, Fiftieth Indiana Regiment, who is here unfit for field duty, to assist me temporarily.
