Richmond, December 22, 1864.

Negroes are not Allowed to Pass the Intermediate line of Fortifications without a passport from this office.

No passport will be given a slave except on the written order of his owner; and if the handwriting of the owner be not well known at the office, or attested properly, the owner must apply for the passport in person. This precaution is rendered necessary by the frequent appearance at the office of forged orders, and will be strictly observed.

J. H. Carrington,
Provost-Marshal. de 23--1m
