[167] Johnston, who thought they would be of no service to him, and left them in my hands.

Yours truly,


I visited Professor J. P. Logan at his home in Atlanta in 1891, shortly before his death. He stated that after the Civil War (1861-1865), during his residence in Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. A. J. Foard, formerly Medical Director of the Army of Tennessee, who was in feeble health, before leaving for Charleston, S. C., left four manuscript books relating to the Medical Officers and Official Orders of the Medical Directors Office of the Army of Tennessee, in his hands for preservation.

Dr. Logan as Post Surgeon of Atlanta in 1863-1864; of Augusta, Georgia, in 1864-1865, placed these manuscript volumes in my possession in order to aid in my labors in behalf of the medical corps of the Confederate army.

In consolidating the two manscript volumes, containing the names, rank and services of the medical officers, I have been greatly aided by my daughters Miss C. S. Jones and Miss Mary C. Jones, who were untiring in their efforts to secure accuracy in the execution of this tedious work.
