Sir: In your statement of the amount of cotton passing through your command while at New Orleans, you state a balance of $834,529.34, but you do not state to what officer of the Treasury you turned over said amount or the manner of its adjnstment. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

WASHINGTON, D. C., September 26, 1866. GENERAL: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of September 22, 1866, calling attention to the omission to state in my report upon the cotton that passed through the command to which I belonged, " to what officers of the Treasury Î transferred the $834,529.34, balance of its proceeds." This amount was used in the Quartermaster's Department as if belonging to the regular funds of that appropria tion, as shown by the vouchers rendered with my accounts in that department, hav. ing been directed thus to use and report it by the major-general commanding the Department of the Gulf. With great respect, your obedient servant,
S. B. HOLABIRD,
Brevet Colonel, A, Q. M. Maj. Gen. M. C. MEIGS,
OFFICE OF ASSISTANT QUARTERMASTER,

Please send me, at your earliest convenience, receipts for the same. And I have to request that the same be sold at auction, and the net proceeds be deposited in the United States subtreasury at New York to the credit of Col. S. B. Holabird, chief quartermaster, Department of the Gulf. Respectfully, your obedient servant,
Chief Quartermaster, Department of the Gulf. Maj. STEWART VAN VLIET,
Quartermaster, U. S. A., New York.
Report of General S. Van Vliet, Quartermaster, U. S. A. (From House Ex. Doe No. 97
Thirty-ninth Congress, second session, pages 24 and 25.)
New York, October 11, 1866. GENERAL: I have the honor to transmit herewith a condensed statement of all the cotton received by me during the war, and the disposition made of it.
I had no cotton in my hands at the close of the war.
I beg, while on this subject, to call attention to the large amount of money dne ou department for the transportation of cotton, and which should have been paid from the proceeds of 300 icotton. I frequently called Mr. Barney's attention to it, but could never bring }; 300 barettlement.
