Dear Sir,
   The hand car has been promised me from day to day and if it does not come Monday from Marion I will send for it. Capt. Wurzback has not recd the iron from Columbiana belonging to the Tenn Road {Alabama & Tennessee River RR} -- he supposes that it is still lying at the depot at Columbiana. I have seen Mr. Andrews & he says that at present he cannot possibly furnish the cars as he promised owing to the heavy demand for rolling stock from the Miss Road {Alabama & Mississippi Rivers RR} to transport troops. As soon as this is over he will make some definite arrangement -- meantime he promises to keep you well supplied with coal provided you let him know two or three days before you get out. *** The Decatur will be out next week. ***
Most Res'py
