   Gen Johnston directs you see Col Tate {President, Memphis & Charleston RR}, and have him construct with all possible dispatch 4 carriages for 24 pdr (siege carriages).
      If you have not got the drawings answer by telegraph. In the mean time I will have them copied so as to forward them at the earliest moment, with all the specifications.
I am sir
Very Respy
