Dear Sir,

In response to the circular of Dec. 13th, 1882, I have to report as follows: In regard to accessions, since my assignment to field service, early in 1880, the records of details have been in the hands of Mr. R. Rathbun who has kindly assumed the duty of reporting on this branch of the subject. His statistics will be forwarded with this document if received in time.
