October 17th 1862
In reference to obtaining iron for track on New Bridge proposes to obtain it from NC RRd and proposes an exchange of old iron for new.
W J Magrath Prest C&S RR  {Charleston & Savannah RR}
Referred to Qr Mr Genl for a report on the subject. By order Sec of War. J A Campbell A. S. S. W.
I respectfully report that the Govt has no iron which can be supplied to the C&S. The question of obtaining the iron from the W&R RR {Wilmington, Charlotte & Rutherford RR} by impressment can not be determined by this office. It would seem to be a matter to be arranged between the companies. A C Myers QM Genl
