eipt in full for 1863. Summoned to Brigade Headquarters with Captain R. M. Greene, of the 6th, and Lieutenant Dunlop, of 3d Alabama, to investigate the stealing of two cows from the Misses Lee.

From 3/4 to a pound of flour, and no vegetables, nor coffee, nor syrup, nor indeed aught else per man. The hearty fellows get hungry. Jan. 4 and 5. Colonel Chilton, chief of General Lee's staff, answered my letter of inquiry of 29th ult., and sent me a copy of General Orders, No. 1, current series, A. N.
