Respectfully submitted to the Sec. of War. This is properly a charge against
the Department of the Interior. at all Events there is no appropriation under the control of the Quarter Master's Department which can be legally applied to such payments. Commanding Officers are obliged in the course of their services to direct such Expenditures and if the Department to which they belong refuses to sanction them a specific appropriation will be necessary to settle the accounts presented, as well as similar accounts which may accrue.
