[231] threaten to become a burden instead of a benefit, being mostly unarmed. In some counties the question was not who should go to the army, but who should stay at home. I am satisfied that could I have remained in Missouri this winter the army would have increased fifty thousand men.

I have the honor to remain, your obedient servant,

Stirling Price, Major-General Commanding.
