Lieut Bankhead has been since the 22nd September 1855 in
charge of the Commissary supplies, and they are all well stored
in the buildings referred to, as hired by the Quartermaster, and
in good order. His accounts and returns are all well kept and
properly forwarded. There was a balance due the U. S. 31 March
of 6321 32/100 dollars. Since expended to the 25th April 12 25/100
leaving at date 6309 07/100 dolls on hand, of which 6200 is with
the Asst Treasurer in New Orleans and 109 07/100 dolls in cash.
On the 25th Dec 1855 the Council of Administration condemned
344 bbls flour as musty, wormy, weavily and sour. And 171 bbls
flour was condemned at fort McIntosh, say in all 505 bbls out of
1092 of flour received from Baltimore on the 25th May 1855.
There is strong reason to believe this flour was not good when
shipped. I must here refer to my previous recommendation.
As there are no troops here the duties of Acting Commissary
could be performed by the Quartermaster.
