Colonel CA Cilley
Bu RF and A.L

I have the honor to send herein Requisitions for Forage for Public Animals lately in the use of the Bu RF & AL in this Dist. The Post Quartermaster refused to issue unless ordered to do so by Col MC Garber and stated that such were his[[?]] I wrote to Col Garber about the first of the Month requesting him to direct the Post Qr. Mr. to issue on my Requisition and as no attention was paid to this matter I was obliged to borrow the Forage to prevent the Public Animals from starving to death. I wrote again to Col Garber on the 7th with letter was also unanswered. 
The Public Animals and Transportation used by the Bureau here were turned over to the Post Qr Mr yesterday. Will you please have the Post Quartermaster ordered to issue on the enclosed Requisition
