e effective strength of the Army on the 10th of June, near Kennesaw Mountain, when about eighty miles from Dalton, and within about twenty miles of Atlanta, was fifty-nine thousand two hundred and forty-eight (59,248); whilst the return of the 10th of July shows, just after crossing the Chattahoochee river on the night of the 9th, an effective total of only fifty thousand six hundred and twenty-seven (50,627), which, subtracted from the number we had when near Kennesaw Mountain the 10th of June,, dated July 24th, 1864: No records were turned over by former chief of staff; therefore, the records of the office embrace only the administration of General Shoupe. Major Falconer, in referring to General Johnston's last return of the 10th of July, says: The report was made under General Johnston, and signed by General Hood.

When, according to this same report, we suffered a loss, over and above the killed and wounded, of four thousand and seventy-three (4073) men who abandoned their colors, and went either to their homes or to the enemy just prior to the retreat across the Chattahoochee river, it is not reasonable to assume that no desertions occurred from the 10th of July--the date of his last return — to the 18th, when a change of commanders took place in the face of the enemy, and under extraordinary circumstances. The supposition that many deserted during this interval is but just and natural. I am, therefore, confident that I am over-liberal in the estimate given--forty-eight thousand seven hundred and fifty (48,750) effectives — in my official report of the effective strength of the Army of Tennessee, when I assumed command. However, I will, in thi
