War Department
Provost Marshal General's Office
Washington, D.C., June 25, 1863

To Lt. Col. Robt. C. Buchanan, 4th Inf.
Acting Assistant Provost Marshal General
Trenton, N.J.


I am directed by the Provost Marshal General to instruct you to see that each of the Provost Marshals under your supervision, makes all the necessary preliminary arrangements to effect a draft as soon as one may be ordered. The name of each man of the 1st class should be written on a separate card, suitable to be put in a box or wheel for drawing. The necessary box or wheel for drawing should be provided without delay. You will also see that adequate preparation is made for the prompt entry of the names drawn, as required by paragraph 74, Regulations for the government of the Bureau of the Provost Marshal General, and for speedy notification, in each sub-district, of persons drafted.

You will also make without delay any other arrangements, not herein specified, that may be advantageous and proper for the accomplishment of the draft, with the least possible delay.

I am, sir, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
Henry Stone
Assistant Adjutant General
