5. letter of General Sedgwick. headquarters Sixth army corps Welford Ford, Dec. 16, 1863. [Personal.] My Dear Townsend: There is a change proposed in the organization of this army — reducing the number of corps to three. Whether I am to be retained as one of the commanders, I do not know; but I write this to ask you, when the matter is brought up in Washington, to retain the number of this corps — the Sixth. It is entirely harmonious, and a great deal of esprit du corps is in it.eral armies, and this is partly true of the First; and every corps (the Sixth excepted) has had several regiments assigned to it, from time to time. I am afraid the First, Second, and Third will be retained, when I should like to see the Second, Third, and Sixth. I am sure you will assist me in this matter, if in your power; at all events, I rely upon you in letting me know when the subject comes up. Yours very truly, John Sedgwick. Colonel E. D. Townsend, Assistant Adjutant-Genera
