Summary "...I am induced to think that the recruiting service for the Sixth and Seventh Regiments will be promoted by leaving them to take their winter quarters within their respective states. I submit this observation. It is not for me to judge as to these troops whether there are reasons for adhering to the primitive plan which outweigh the consideration just mentioned."
