Bureau, Refugees and Freedmen and A.L.
Sub. District of Corinth, Miss.
April 6th 1867

Bvt. Maj. A.W. Preston
Vicksburg, Miss.

I have the honor to request an order to inspect the Counties composing my District, for the purpose of locating schools, and visiting the respective County seats with a view to obtaining information relative to the interests of the Bureau, and investigating cases which I may receive from time to time, and which may require a personal investigation.
I would wish this order to direct Col. Wills, A.A.M at this point to furnish me the necessary transportation, or, in case that I be allowed mileage, to liquidate my Accounts.

I have the honor to be, Major,
Very Respectfully
Your Obdt. Servant
