Major Matthews Lt. Colo. Artillery
Captain Edmunds Major Artillery

The Board having not in possession a Regular and proper Roster of the State Artillery, cannot certify precisely how far the chain of preferment occasioned by Colonel Muters removal may extend. We have specified the field promotions, and will notify those of a more subordinate nature as soon as we are acquainted therewith.
