Raleigh, March 14, 1865
Colonel Parker
   General Johnston directs that you make immediate arrangements for the transportation of the Federal prisoners here to the point on the Raleigh & Gaston Railroad nearest to the Danville railroad {probably means the North Carolina RR}. Colonel Cunningham will have command of the guard (State troops), and will be directed to confer with you. Capt. John Robinson, engineer, will give you information about railroad trains, and you should see him. I will send the guard to report to you, and you will please turn it over to Colonel Cunningham.
Archer Anderson
Assistant Adjutant-General
