   I have the honor herewith to send a letter from Mr. Saml. Tate President of the M. & C. R. R. {Memphis & Charleston RR} and also one from Gov. Harris on the same subject.
   From all I can learn here there is no reason to doubt the loyalty and zeal of Mr Tate & Ross the President and Superintendent of the M. & C. R. R.
   I find great difficulty in transporting the stores from this place but hope to get matters managed soon.
Yours Respectfully
Your obt Sevt
