I have perused the Report & Proclamation which you were pleased to put into my hands for consideration; and think an alteration in the first, and a consequent one in the other, indispensably necessary; Because as the Report now stands, it is not broad enough to comprehend the several cases which exist—for the Troops of the Southern Army were furloughed by General Green, whilst those, which lay...
