In reply to your letter of this date, I have the honor to say that the 10 boxes of Blanks were received; that Division Commanders were advised of the fact, and requested to send

for such blanks as they needed, and that they were judiciously issued to the different Divisions of the Army of the Tenn, and receipts taken therefore.

A supply of blanks were issued to Maj Genl Thomas yesterday, and a similar requisition was filled for Genl Judah 1 to day. I have yet on hand a sufficient supply for present use, which will be issued as fast as called for.

I am Col Very Respcty
