Brig. Genl. Anderson Head Qrs. ***
Comg Division Near Dullin
Jan. 9 64
I wrote to Genl. Cleburne asking him for a copy of the article he read at our
meeting on the night of the 2nd. I informed him that I feel it my duty to forward the
document to the War Department which I intend to do. He has sent it and avowed
himself its author. Will you pleas inform me whether you favor the propositions of that
document in any form. A similar letter to this I shall address to each of the gentlemen
who were at that meeting & their answers will be sent with this document for I don't wish
to misrepresent anyone. You will oblige me by sending an answer today as I wish to
send off the article tomorrow.
I am genl.
Very resp. yours
