Subject: RE: Trans-Miss. Confederate telegraph

Message Detail:
Doyle: 10-4. I have noticed that General Holmes's communications expenditures in Arkansas in 1863, when compared with those in North Carolina in 1864 (when he was General of the Reserves), Holmes spent a lot more money on courier services in Arkansas. Also, I'm assuming that whatever communications route was used, by early 1863, telegrams to the eastern half of the Confederacy had to be put on a boat to cross the Mississippi River to Port Hudson or Vicksburg. Is that a correct asumption? Again, thanks for your help. Walt
