Office Bu. R.F. & A.L. Sub Dist of Corinth Miss April 15th 1867 Bvt. Maj. A.W. Preston A.A.A. Gen'l Vicksburg Miss Major I have the honor to report that I arrived at my station on the 25th inst and entered upon my duties. No complaints reached this office up to the 31st inst. I visited the camp of the Freedmen employed on the military cemetery, found those quarters clean and comfortable. I have also made it my duty to visit the negro settlements in the vicinity of Corinth they appear to be industrious making no complaints of wages or the payment of them. The municipal authoritys and intelligent white citizens express their willingness and do incourage the education of the Freed people. The school recently opened is well attended by both sexes the young children learn rapidly. No opportunity has occurred up to the 31st inst of testing the Civil Courts where the interests of the Freedmen are in question. Very Respectfully your Obt. Servt John D. Moore 1st Lt. V.R.C. Asst Sub Comr
