Colonel J. B. FRY,

Provost-Marshal General:

SIR: Your communication of the 28th ultimo, in which you so kindly expressed you approval of the manner in which the affairs of your Burneau have been managed in this State, was duly received. I highly appreciate the favorable opinion expressed of my official action and shall endeavor not to forfeit it in future.

The newspaper reports as to the condition of affairs in Monroe County were exaggerations of the truth. Colonel Biddle, who was in command of the troops sent there, did, request that one section of a battery might be sent to him, and it was done, out of abundant caution and to be prepared for any contingency that might arise. He was instructed to adopt the very policy indicated in your letter, namely, that if compelled to strike at all, to do it which vigor determination as to prevent the necessity of a repetition of the blow.

The enrollment lists that had been taken from the enrolling officer were recaptured, the principal offenders arrested, and the enrollment of the disaffected district completed without a conflict.
