Major T. M. VINCENT,
Assistant Adjutant-General, Adjutant-General's Office.
MAJOR: I have the honor to inform you that a draft has this day been order in the following States and district:
Date. State. District. Number
July 10 New York............... Twenty- 2,068
10 Pennsylvania........... Third..... 3,015
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
GEO. D. RUGGLES,
STATE OF INDIANA,
OFFICE ACTG. ASST. PROVOST-MARSHAL-GENERAL,
Indianapolis, July 10, 1863.
Colonel JAMES B. FRY,
SIR: In consequence of Morgan's raid into this State and the fears I entertain that these is an understanding between him and the Knights of the Golden Circle, I have instructed the several provost-marshal that in event of the militia being called away from the neighborhood of the headquarters of the district or any or either of them the rolls shall be so secreted as to put it out the power of domestic enemies to find them. The militia of the State are being called out, and I am apprehensive that domestic traitors may embrace this opportunity to destroy the rolls. This may delay the work a few days, but this is better than to run the risk of having it to do over again. Morgan's raid must of necessity soon terminate, and I trust it will terminate disastrously to him. I have been called upon by the commanding officer of this district to assist in organizing the militia, and have responded to the call, but hope to be able at the same time to keep the business of this office properly attended to.
Respectfully, your obedient servant,
Colonel and Actg. Asst. Prov. March General for Indiana.
INDIANA, July 10, 1863.
