HEADQUARTERS TWENTY-FOURTH ARMY

HEADQUARTERS TWENTY-FOURTH ARMY CORPS,
ARMY OF THE JAMES,
In the Field, Va., December 13, 1864.

 Lieut. Col. EDWARD W. SMITH,
Assistant Adjutant-General, Dept. of Va. and N. C.:

COLONEL: I respectfully apply for the return to duty with their respective regiments of all officers and enlisted men of this command now on detached service with the Twenty-fifth Army Corps. I am well aware that it is a matter of necessity that details should be made from the white troops for certain duties in that corps, but I respectfully suggest that the interests of the service would be promoted by making them from the troops in garrison in this department rather than from the active army in the field.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

 ALF. H. TERRY,

Brevet Major-General, Commanding.
