To Maj. Gen. John M. Schofield

Nashville Mar 17th 12 M [1864]

FOR GEN SCHOFIELD—I have had an inspection made of Camp Nelson & Mt Sterling 1

It shows a wasteful extravagance there and also that the points are badly selected—It seems to me that Camp Nelson should be broken up entirely and the public property issued where it will be of service. I would suggest that B. Genl. Cox, 2 or some other intelligent officer be sent into that part of Kentucky with authority to make such changes as the public good may seem to demand— The troops should watch closely an advance of the enemy from Western Virginia.

As soon as I return to the East 3 I will try to get up an expedition from Western Virginia to move on to the R. Rd. to the rear of Breckenridge.

I have ordered the new cavalry to Mt Sterling as you request— Cannot Cumberland Gap be supplied from Knoxville better than as now supplied—
