Major Gen'l O. O. Howard.

I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of an official copy of a communication addressed to Gen'l [[underlined]] O. Brown [[/underlined]] Asst. Comr. of Va. in regard to certain cashiers of Freedmen's Banks, and to report that there are no Cashiers of that Institution in this State who have appointments to disburse bounties, — at least none have been so reported to these Hd. Qrs.

In this connection I desire to be instructed as to whether or not the rent of offices for Branch Banks is to be continued after January 1st inst?

Very respectfully
Your obdt. serv't.
