Annual Report of the Mobile & Ohio RR
as of April 1, 1864,
President's Report
Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Stockholders of the
Mobile & Ohio Railroad Company
Held in Mobile, April 19, 1864
To the Stockholders of the Mobile & Ohio Railroad Company
   The great confusion produced by the recent raid of the enemy on our Road, has prevented the collection of the facts necessary to make out the usual tables to accompany the Annual report until within a few days. The Chief Engineer and General Superintendent has labored with great industry and energy to put the road again in running order, and has been so much employed on the line of the road, that he has not been able to present his report until this morning. I am myself suffering under a severe family affliction in the recent death of my son. Under these circumstances, I am compelled to ask you indulgence in relieving me from the duty of making a formal report.
   I herewith present the report of the chief Engineer and General Superintendent, with the tables which accompany it. This report presents all the material facts.
Most respectfully submitted,
Milton Brown
President, Mobile & Ohio Railroad Company
