I have the honor to report that I was relieved of the charge of the Sub-Dist. of Corinth by Bv't. Maj. Geo S. Smith, on the 30th inst. and have entered upon duty as Sub-Ass't Commissioner, Sub Dist of Lauderdale, in compliance with Special Order – of date, Vicksburg, August 20', 1867.

As I did not assume charge of this Sub-Dist, until the last day of the month, and am unacquainted with the business transacted by this office prior to my arrival, I am unable for the present month to make the monthly report required by Circular Letter of date July 25∼, 1867.

I am, Colonel, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant
John D Moore
