November 1, 1864
Lieut. Gen. R. Taylor
Selma, Ala.
   The Mobile & Ohio Railroad refuse to send rolling-stock enough to supply the wants of the service on the road from Corinth here. It is most important that this should be at once attended to. General Beauregard desires that you will take measures promptly to get the Mobile & Ohio and Memphis & Charleston Railroads to work together and secure enough cars and motive power. As the trip here is long, General Beauregard prefers your remaining in Selma and attending to this matter, instead of coming here, as requested.
