   I call your attention to the enclosed copy of a letter from J. W. Rogers, A. C. S. dated at Grand Junction on the 10th inst.
   The delays in the transmission of Govt. freights are productive of much inconvenience and embarrassment, and I bring the statements contained in this letter to your notice, that you may give the necessary instructions to the officers and agents of your road to prevent the recurrence of similar interruption to transportation in the future.
