Richmond Va., April 9, 1863
Respecting transportation of voluntary contributions of supplies.
J. M. Hottel
An order to receive such contributions on Passenger Trains might lead to the impressment of these trains but it is recommended earnestly to the Roads as far as conveniently can be allowed such contributions to pass on them as such as other pass.
J. A. S. Secty
I do not think an order in reference to transportation by passenger train is necessary or desirable. If issued it would result in making passenger trains carry all freight.
