HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF HENRICO,
Richmond, July 1, 1863.
Maj. T. O. CHESTNEY,
MAJOR: I am directed by the general commanding the department to report the following forces, that can be used at the fortifications around this city: 1,112 convalescents from hospitals; 600 exchanged prisoners; one company at Camp Lee, numbering about 60 men. There are also about 560 convalescents organized at Camp Winder, under Lieutenant-Colonel Cunningham, which have yet to be armed and equipped; this will be done as soon as practicable. I do not know whether Colonel Walker has yet fully armed and equipped all the convalescents under his command.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
J. W. PEGRAM,
