Detroit Michigan
April 17th 1851

GEN.

Your note of the 12th Inst. enquiring for the number of public offices to supply with fuel and the amount of other transportation necessary has just been recieved.

There are four public offices supplied by the Act. Asst. Qr. Mr. with fuel. In addition to this the bread has to be taken daily from the Bakehouse to the garrison, a distance of one mile, and a load of slops and matter collected by the police party taken, also daily, from the Barrack. The rations for issue are taken monthly from the store house in the city to the Barracks.

I am Gen.
Very Respectfully
Your Obt. Svt.

"I have received your letter of the 17th instant in answer to mine of the 12th reporting the number of public offices at Detroit to be supplied with fuel; and the transportion required. The fuel should be delivered at the offices monthly, and its delivery thus, be made one of the conditions of the contract. The carrying of the bread from the bake house to the garrison is an expense that cannot, under any circumstances, be borne by the United States, who furnish the flour, but do not receive any of the profits. Those who receive the profits should bear all the expenses incident to them. The officers' servants and the police party must dispose of the slops and other matter collected by them. The issue of provisions to the troops is usually made at the commissary's store house, but if the distance from it to the barracks is so great as to render it absolutely necessary, a dray or truck may be hired for their delivery at the barracks. The insufficient appropriations made for the army render it necessary
