General B. Bragg
   Mobile road {Mobile & Ohio RR} is obstructed for days by rains. Two serious accidents to persons and machinery. These should be guarded against more carefully, and more promptly repaired. The immense quantity of provisions in this country should be immediately transported to within reach of Army of Tennessee and of Northern Virginia. They are liable to waste, decay, and raids. I write from here.
