HEADQUARTERS TRANS-MISSISSIPPI DEPARTMENT,.
Shreveport, October 1, 1864.
General S. COOPER,
Adjutant and Inspector General :
SIR: I have the honor respectfully to request that Special Orders,
No. 171, Adjutant and Inspector General's Office, Richmond, of July 21,
1864,* be revoked. I believe that serious injury would result to the
service were this order enforced. I have delayed its publication,
awaiting further instructions. General Maxey, commanding the dis-
trict of the Indian country, has with skill, judgment, and success
administered his duties. I have satisfactory evidence for believing
that he gives satisfaction to both Indian and white troops. His re
moval, besides being an injustice to him, would be a misfortune to the r:
department. General Cooper has been assigned to the divisih o f
Indian troops serving under General Maxey in the Indian Territory.
I would respectfully refer the department to Colonel Scott, the Conm-
missioner of Indian Affairs, for particulars regarding the civil adminis-
tration of General Maxey's district.
Respectfully, your obedient servant,
E. KIRBY SMITH,
Please inform General Smith, in answer to this letter, that Special
Orders, No. 171, from this office, is deemed imperative and must be,
carried into effect.
