Francis R. Lubbock to Earl Van Dorn, February 1862

I regret that you were not more explicit as
to the period of time you wished men for,
and the last moment it would do to send them
forward to Genl Pike.

Another point: How are the men to be
subsisted, and how is transportation to be fur-
nished? I allude to men that may be hereafter
raised if ordered as you desire.

I should be pleased to hear from you,
and feel most anxious to do every thing I can
to forward the success of the great struggle in
which we are engaged.

I am
Yours with great respect
(Signed) F.R. Lubbock.

A true copy of the original.
