Not allowed men in Wisconsin regiments..................... 100

Not allowed men in Dakota regiments........................ 16

Not yet reported to your office:

Men in Illinois regiments.................................. 465

-----

This statement is based on the assumption that all the men acknowledged by your Department were counted as for three-years" term, and is exclusive of drafted men and substitutes, which class has not yet been reported to this office by the acting assistant provost-marshal-general of the State.

With great respect, I have the honor to be, truly, yours,

N. B. BAKER,
