Quartermaster General's Department
Richmond, February 7th 1862
Mr. Sam Tate
Pres. Memphis & Charleston RR.
Now in Richmond
   I have received your letter of this date in which you request that I will have restored to you, as President of the Memphis & Charleston RR, two engines had some time since for the use of the East Tennessee & Virginia road. I have complied with your wish, by issuing the necessary directions to Mr. John R. Branner, President of the latter road. You will apply to him in relation to the matter.
