Several of my men are actually barefoot, a number of others nearly so. The quarter-master says he cannot draw any. What is the remedy for this? I also need salt for the horses.

These are some of wants not already made apparent by former requisitions, and I respectfully request you, Major, to have them supplied.

Respectfully submitted,

John B Rowan, Captain commanding Battery. To Major Joseph Palmer, commanding Battalion of Artillery Stevenson's Division.


Respectfully forwarded.

Joseph Palmer, Major commanding Battalion Artillery Stevenson's Division.


Headquarters Stevenson's division, February 1st, 1864.
Respectfully returned. An inspector will be sent to ascertain what is needed, and why the bridles, saddles, collars, &c., which were new a few weeks since, have been destroyed. The officer in charge of the battery will be held accountable for the loss.

Every effort is being made to get shoes for the command, and the artillery shall have its proportion as soon as received. Clothing can be obtained on proper requisition in a short time. Let the quarter-master make requisition for salt for horses. General Order No. 17 prescribes the quantity of transportation to batteries and no more can be obtained.

By command of Major-General Stevenson,

G. A. Haywood, A. C. C.

head-quarter's Rowan's battery, near Dalton, Ga., April 10th, 1864.
Major,—I respectfully submit for your consideration a few facts in regard to the feed furnished the stock of this battalion. I
