The Return of Hazen’s Regt mentioned in your Letter of this date cannot be accepted, as no intimation has ever been given from Authority that the promotions in question have taken place—and until such official information shall be received no Notice can be taken of them, as I have already informed the Inspector of the Army in answer to his request to know in what manner the Persons said to be promoted are to be borne on the last Muster Rolls which have been taken of that Corps.
