MEMORANDA.

The quotas of the District in 1861 and 1862, as determined in this office, were calculated on the basis of population as per the census of 1860. The male population therein given for the District is 29,584. In determining the quota I did so by considering the quotas and population of the State of Kansas. The quota of the District was found to be nearly one-half that of Kansas, which was as follows:

Under calls of 1861, volunteers (three-years)..........3,235

Under calls of July, 1862, volunteers (three-years)....1,771

Under calls of 1862, militia (nine-months).............1,771

I find now what I hurriedly sent a memorandum of the quotas to the Provost-Marshal-General, and in so doing in advertably gave the quotas for Kansas instead of the quotas of the District, which would have been as follows, viz:

Under calls of 1861 (three-years)........................1,627

Under call of July, 1862 (three-years)................... 890

Under call of 1862 (nine-months).....................890= 225

The total quotas for 1861 and 1862, three-years" standard, would, therefore, be as follows: 1,627 + 890 + 225 = 2,742.
