I--The State of Missouri is added to the Military Department of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and portions of Western Pennsylvania and Virginia. Major General McClellan will extend his command accordingly.
II--The Headquarters of the Department of the West are removed from St. Louis to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
III--The three months' militia and the three years' volunteers will be paid at once to include the 31st of May, 1861. With this view, Commanding officers of these troops will cause duplicate muster rolls to be made out immediately, which they will forward to the Paymaster General in this city; and upon these rolls the officers of the Pay Department will pay in full, leaving any stoppage to be deducted at a future payment.
IV--The names of the following officers will be stricken from the Rolls of the Army:
Captain Charles H. Tyler, 2d Dragoons, for abandoning the command of, and deserting his Post, Fort Kearny.
1st Lieutenant Charles H. Rundell, 4th Infantry, for continued disobedience of orders, absence without leave, and failing to render his accounts as required by the Act of January 31, 1823.
1st Lieutenant Andrew Jackson, 3d Infantry, for absenting himself from his company without permission, and failing to make any report.
And 2nd Lieutenants Charles E. Patterson, 4th Infantry; Olin F. Rice, 6th Infantry, and Charles C. Campbell, 1st Cavalry, for tendering their resignations in the face of the enemy.
There is a light vertical fold crease in the paper which does not really detract from the overall appearance of the document. Very fine 1861 U.S. War Department imprint.
