Montgomery, Ala.
January 26, 1865
Lieut. Gen. R. Taylor
Meridian, Miss.
   We have transportation for 2,000 men per day here {probably meaning that capacity on the Montgomery & West Point RR}. So far the arrivals average only 400 men. Cannot the number be increased? If they arrive at Meridian would it not be well to send part via Mobile? Officer at Selma complains of conduct of officers and men there and asks that a general officer be sent there to control them.
