Headquarters Lee's Cavalry

April 30, 1864
Lieut. Col. T. M. Jack
Assistant Adjutant-General
Demopolis, Ala.
   Jackson 's division is about Carthage, and Ferguson near the railroad opposite Centreville. While in Jones' Valley he had to move daily and exhausted the supplies where he went. He was compelled to move to his present position to get supplies by rail and draw a small supply from the country. The railroad (branch) northeast of Montevallo {Alabama & Tennessee River RR} could not supply him, and owing to deficiency of transportation on the railroad he says now that he will not be able to get long forage for his horses. His horses are in bad condition and should be recruited if the exigencies of the service permit, and nothing can be obtained in the country near where he is at present.
I am, colonel, yours, respectfully,
S. D. Lee
