Qr Mr Genl
   In view of the fact that many Government stores are abstracted from Rail Road Cars, and much time and labor lost in moving freight passing from one Road to another, I respectfully ask that an order may be given to have manufactured the seats & instruments to put them on, as exhibited in your office yesterday.
Very Respectfully
Your obt Svt
