I have received your letters of the twenty seventh of February, and of the third of March. You mention that it will, probably, be thought expedient to suspend the filling of vacancies which may have been occasioned by staff appointments, or other causes. If, indeed, the disbandment of the additional regiments be an event which is expected very shortly to take place, the thing will be perfectly...
