   We will not let any more freight go East. we want every car you can send here to send troops to Corinth. Send them as rapidly as possible. Get our rolling stock west as fast as you can.
   Provost Marshall here is granting papers to citizens to go to Corinth. There is some machinery in cars at Junction to go to Chattanooga for Rolling Mill. May on send that or not, clear Corinth of empty cars & keep a good switch engine there. You can get along without it. Your regular runners must sleep.
