Lieut. Gen. S. D. Lee
Comdg. Dept. of Alabama, Mississippi, and East Louisiana
   In compliance with your instructions I send Major Flowerree to report to you the condition of my command, and to give you the latest news of the enemy which may arrive before the moment of his leaving. I am anxious about the Montgomery railroad {the Alabama & Florida (of Alabama) RR}, which is much exposed to raids from Pensacola. I drew Maury's regiment to this side to be in place to re-enforce you, and then to guard the Mobile & Ohio Railroad, and to operate against the enemy in case of his landing at Pascagoula. *****
Very truly and respectfully yours,
Dabney H. Maury
Major-General, Commanding
