Tallahassee, March 5, 1865
Mr. Fulton
Supt. Savannah, Albany & Gulf Railroad, Thomasville, Ga.
   At sunset last evening fourteen transports were reported off Saint Mark's Light-House. Five or six hundred men had landed and were moving toward East River bridge. If the enemy makes a serious demonstration on this section of country, we shall need additional railroad transportation. I have, therefore, respectfully to urge that you place as much of your transportation as you can spare on the Pensacola & Georgia Railroad. I was informed that the road from Live Oak to Lawton would be completed yesterday. Of course every precaution will be taken to prevent any portion of your rolling-stock from falling into the hands of the enemy.
Very respectfully, &c.,
Sam. Jones
Major-General, Commanding
