Confederate official. A letter to Jefferson Davis from Meridian, Miss., apparently while on a tour of inspection, describing the despair and poor morale of General John Bell Hood's army, urging that General Joseph E. Johnston be given command to restore order to that army, and warning against replacing Hood with Beauregard, who is not popular with the soldiers
