. When will Congress act upon the question of rations for officers? It members intend to afford relief, the sooner they do it the better, not only for officers, but for the service itself. And let them act liberally, giving one ration and granting the privilege of purchasing others without restriction. There is no danger that officers will abuse the privilege as long as their own pay remains so small and the price of provisions so high. It is a disgrace to subject Lee and Longstreet, Ewell, Gordon, Kershaw, and thousands of others, who have fought and bled as men seldom ever fought and bled before, to the annoyance and vexation to which they are daily exposed in order to obtain their stinted rations. There is nothing in the surrounding country for them to purchase. A liberal act will work no disadvantage to the privates, for whom I need hardly make protestation at this late day of my jealous friendship; if left to them they would adopt a generous policy at once. Sallust.
