are estimated at $10,500, making for salary and fees $14,500, or about one and one-sixth per cent. on $1,253,000 disbursed.

It must be borne in mind that the whole expenses of the agency for rent of office, fuel, lights, clerk-hire, postage on vouchers, furniture, and incidental outlays are paid by the agent. These items for the year I estimate will amount to $8,000, which deducted from the total amount received from salary and fees, leaves the agent the sum of $6,500 as his net compensation for the year; being about one-half of one per cent. on $1,253,000 disbursed.

My postage bills for three payments, covering a period of ten months, amounted to $1,080, of which I am only entitled to $308.15 from the Government, the balance being borne by myself, as all other expenses are except records and stationery, and paid out of my salary and fees, as before stated.


In the testimony of Adjutant-General Townsend, on page 40, sixth line from the bottom, for the word "commutation" read "hire;" and on page 41, third line from the top, after the word "yes" insert the words "forage in kind."

On page 27, second line from the bottom, in a remark made by General Hawley, of Connecticut, for" 40,000" read "2,000."

On page 234, bottom line, for "each of these men saves," read " twenty of these men save each."
