Provost Marshal General's Office,
Washington, D. C., February 1, 1864.

The President's order of this date, copy herewith, for a draft on 10th of March, for 500,000 men, after deducting all who may have been raised prior to March 1st, and not heretofore credited, is equivalent to a call for 200,000 men, in addition to the 300,000 called for October 17th. Do everything possible to fill this as well as the former, and secure action at once in anticipation of the exact quotas, which will be announced from this office as soon as possible. Confer with Governor immediately.
