Chf Ordnance
   In obedience to your order I left here on the morning of the 6th and proceeded to Rienzi {Mobile & Ohio RR} at which place I found one car load of cannon consisting of two 6 pdr Brass Guns & one 12 pdr Howitzer, the RR agent reported that they were left there because the cars on which they were loaded was unserviceable, I sent them on another car, but as the trains own were loaded I was unable to get them shipped, as I could accomplish nothing by waiting I returned to this place last night, The guns left at Rienzi were not in any one's charge.
Respectfully Your obdt Sevt
