Macon Missi Jan 16th 1868 

Maj Genl A C Gillem

Dear Sir
Some time in Oct, I think, the Freedmen upon the Hendrix  & Dobbin plantation made complaint to the Bureau Agent at this place, that they had not been settled with by Mr Hendrix for their services
for the year 1866 - Dr Dobbin then not being connected with the plantation

The matter being reported to H.d Q.r.s - It was ordered that a Receiver might be appointed to take charge of the Copartnership crop & pay over to the Freedmen such interest as Mr Hendrix might have in the crop, after paying the Copartnership liabilities for the year 1867 A little investigation soon developed the fact that the Copartnership would be insolvent upon their Contracts of 1867

Sometime in November a transfer of the Hendrix & Dobbin interest was made to James Longstreet which
Transfer was taken to H.d Qrs - & approved by Genl Ord Under that Transfer as the agent of Jas Longstreet I proceeded to dispose of the crop - & have endeavored to shape my course So as to be safe in a Civil point of view as well as to act in conformity to Military
