HEADQUARTERS PROVISIONAL CORPS,
Cox's Bridge, N. C., March 22, 1865.

 Brig. Gen. C. J. PAINE,
Commanding Third Division, Twenty-fifth Army Corps:

GENERAL: The major-general commanding is informed that a portion of your command is burning buildings and destroying property in front of and within our lines, and has directed me to say that while proper foraging is not prohibited, and indeed absolutely necessary for the support of the command, wanton destruction cannot be permitted, and you will please take measures to put a stop to it immediately.

I have the honor to be, general, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

 A. TERRY,

 Major and Assistant Adjutant-General.
