In regard to Iowa men in regiments from other States, I would refer to the correspondence heretofore had with your headquarters on the subject, and in which the principle was enunciated that no such credits could be allow, except on an adjustment between the Governors of the States concerned. All troops regularly reported from October 1, 1864, to May 20, 1865, have been duly credited, and the records of the acting assistant provost-marshal-general of the State should bear evidence of the fact. Your letter of August 9, with a copy of this, has been referred to the Provost- Marshal-General of the United States for his action.
I am, general, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
THOMAS M. VINCENT,
