CHAr. XXXIV.] CORRESPONDENCE, ETC.-CONFEDERATE.
amounts shown in this memorandum will be somewhat increased when
my papers are closed up, so that I can arrive at the true amounts.

OFFICE OF CHIEF PAYMASTER, TRANS-MISS. DEPT.,
Shreveport, La., January 19, 1864.
Maj. J. P. JOHNSON,
Asst. Adjt. and Insp. Gen., Trans-Miss. Dept., Shreveport, La. :
MAJOR: I have the honor to submit the following statement of the
condition of the pay department:
The troops in the department have all been paid to include August
31, 1863, and the officers to a much later period, probably to date
These payments were made from funds obtained from the Confederate
States depository, by order of the lieutenant-general commanding, and
a portion of them was received from the quartermaster's funds by a
The balance on hand, after these payments, is $518,621, which will
scarcely be sufficient to meet the current expenses of the department
and to pay the paroled prisoners from Vicksburg and Port Hudson,
now reporting to General Allen, at Shreveport, La., and to General
Dockery, at Washington, Ark.
Estimates for funds required for the pay of the troops in the depart-
ment to December 31, 1863, were forwarded to Richmond, Va., on the
12th of September, 1863, but as yet no notice has reached this office of
the arrival of the funds. I have also just forwarded, through the chief
quartermaster Trans-Mississippi Department, estimates for the pay of
the troops for the six months ending June 30, 1864.

emy renders it impossible to calculate, with any certainty, upon the
receipt of funds in this department.
I have the honor to be, major, very respectfully, your obedient serv-

quantity of stores received, issued, and remaining on hand, are required
