28 February 1864,
Grant writes to logistical mastermind General Robert Allen in Louisville regarding supplies requested by Allen.
It will be impossible probably to supply the number of Artillery & Cavalry horses called for within this Military Division but I would suggest that now all on hand be forwarded as rapidly as possible to this place and others be procured and forwarded as fast as they can be purchased. I will order this distribution from here.
U.S. Grant / Maj. Gen.
