[281] who are especially charged with the executiou of its details in North Carolina, the Department of the South, and at Macon and Western Georgia. Captain Jasper Myer, United States army, is hereby designated to receive the arms at Greensboro, N. C., and any commanding officer of the East may receive arms of any detachments, and see that they are properly stored and accounted for. General Schofield will procure at once necessary blanks and supply the other army commanders, that uniformity may prevail, and great care must be taken that the terms and stipulations on our part be fulfilled with the most scrupulous fidelity, whilst those imposed on the hitherto enemies be received in a spirit becoming a brave and generous army.

Army commanders may at once loan to the inhabitants such of the captured mules and horses, wagon and vehicles, as can be spared from immediate use, and the commanding generals of armies may issue provisions, animals and any public supplies that can be spared, to relieve present wants, and encourage the inhabitants to renew peaceful pursuits, and to restore the relation of friendship among our fellow-citizens and countrymen.

Foraging will forthwith cease, and when necessity or long marches compel the taking of forage and provisions, or any kind of private property, compensation will be made on the spot; or when the disbursing officers are not provided with funds, vouchers will be given in proper form, payable at the nearest military depot.

By order of Major-General W. T. Sherman.


L. M. Levton, A. A. G.
