CAMP SUMTER, Andersonville, Ga., January 27, 1864.
Colonel HARRIS, Commanding Conscript Camp, Macon, Ga.:
SIR: Under instructions from the Quartermaster-General I am required to purchase in southwestern Georgia and in Florida as much beef as I shall need for the supply to Federal prisoners at this post, and shall need some detailed men to drive the beeves. Will you be kind enough to inform me whether I shall make application to you for the detail of those men and if any special form is required. Please answer at once, as I must be making my necessary arrangements.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
R. B. WINDER,
Captain and Assistant Quartermaster.
