as to armament; a copy of which he thinks your Excellency could obtain by application to General Totten. Condition of each Company of Heavy Artillery. Co. A, 1. Captain James H.

Captain Loring S. Richardson, Long Island, 111 men. Co. I 9. 9 Captain Leonard Gordon, Long Island, 111 men. Co. K, 10. Captain Cephas C. Bumpas, Long Island, 112 men. Company L (11), Captain Thomas Herbert, has 147 men enlisted, 36 of whom are claimed as drafted men; and therefore he has not been able to have his company mustered in. He lacks six men to be mustered in as a minimum company, exclusive of the men claimed as drafted. The men are at Fort Independence. Company M (12), Captain J. M. Richardson, reported on the 6th inst. 42 enlisted men. They are at Salem. The aggregate of enlisted men and commissioned officers in the Fort Warren Battalion is 704; of which one company (Captain Little's) is on detached service at Concord, N. H., at camp of drafted men. I respectfully submit that this company should be ordered to the fort, as I understand General Hinks has two companies of the Invalid Corps for guard duty at his camp. Recruiting Officers. The companies which have recruiting officers in service are the 8th, Captain L. S. Richardson; the 9th, Captain Gordon; the 10th, Captain Bumpas; the 11th, Captain Herbert; and the 12th, Captain J. M. Richardson. The 8th company has twenty recruits not mustered in, which makes its aggregate of enlisted men in camp at Long Island 131. The 9th company has ten recruits not mustered in, which makes its aggregate of enlisted men in camp at Long Island 121. The 10th company has fifteen recruits not mustered in, which makes its aggregate of enlisted men in camp at Long Island 127. Total number of enlisted men on duty at Long Island, 379. All of which is respectfully submitted.
