Reports of the campaigns of 1864-5 are especially desired. The Archive Bureau at Washington lacks many of the most important of these reports, and our files also are very defective for these years. There were none of the battle reports later than May, 1863, published by the Confederate Congress; many of the reports for 1864-5 had never been sent to the War Department, and hence the great deficiency. But we are satisfied that many of these reports are still scattered through the country in the hands of the officers who prepared them or of others, and we beg our friends to make diligent inquiries and to endeavor to secure them for us. Remember that where parties are unwilling to surrender originals, we will receive them as a loan until copies can be made both for our office and the Archive Bureau in Washington.
