Captain, You will please to take charge of the Subsistence funds with Gen. Wool's command so long as you are acting as Chief Commissary. Furnish the Officers or Agents of the department with funds from time to time on their requisitions and estimates.

Require them to estimate according to regulations and custom of service - giving all the data in detail and, of course, exercise your discretion in answering their estimates.

You may give them funds to pay the beef contractor or require them to give receipts to him for beef received, stating its amount and value, for what troops and in what month received, and, on such vouchers, pay the contractor yourself.

This last mode, if not too troublesome to you, is preferable. Please furnish me with a copy of your monthly summary statement each month.
