5,000 will go under the charge of Major Alexander.' The Department
having been informed that Colonel Deshler was on board the boat cap-
tured by the enemy while transporting arms across the Mississippi River,
desires an inquiry for the purpose of ascertaining whether he is respon-
sible for the loss; and, if not, who is. You will use your own discre-
tion in organizing the forces that may join you from Missouri. Permits
to raise regiments in' that State are always given subject to your ap-
proval. Before your arrival such permits were subject to General Price's
approval, and he has been directed to communicate with you on the sub-
ject. All new regiments raised in Missouri must conform to the organ-
ization of the Provisional Army. If the companies come in independ-
ently field officers will be appointed by the President, but if any organ-
ized regiments tender their services all the officers are elected. The
Department will continue to send supplies of arms and ammunition to
the Trans-Mississippi country whenever the exigencies of the service
elsewhere will permit. Unless prevented by unforeseen contingencies,
one-fourth of all the arms purchased and manufactured will be for-
warded to you with suitable supplies of ammunition.
Your obedient servant,
G. W. RANDOLPH,
Secretary of War.
