War Department.
Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands,
Washington, April 12 1867.

Maj. Genl. Chas. Griffin
Galveston, Texas.

Dear General:
Is Mr. Wheeler still an agent of the Bureau? He is represented to me in a very bad light, and under the influence of B. Rush Plumley, who has constituted himself without cause, my inveterate enemy.
Very truly yours,
O.O. Howard
Major General,
