SIR: By previous action of the State authorities an enrollment had been made for State conscription, and with a view to carry out the Confederate act new rolls, in anticipation of our application, have been ordered by the State, so as to discriminate between the Confederate and State conscripts, and are now being made out as rapidly as possible, so as to present to you a roll of persons liable to Confederate conscription. These rolls will be ready for presentation to you on the 15th of June, instant. It is hoped that this will meet your views, and that the rolls so prepared and tendered to you will be accepted.

I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
