Richmond, Sept 11th 1863
S. L. Fremont  {Superintendent, Wilmington & Weldon RR}
   There will be about 18,000 troops but I don't know how many will go over your road. Suppose about half. Will write a letter to Capt. Ross in your favor for cars.

{I find no Captain Ross related to railroad cars; I suspect that this is William J. Ross, Superintendent, Memphis & Charleston RR}
