General HeadQuarters, State of Illinois ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE. Springfield, Feb 5, 1864 Dear Governor I send you the list as requested. It was prepared promptly and taken to your office yesterday and was among the papers I laid on the top of your desk yesterday P.M. The list is as perfect as I can make it. You will notice that I have but little information about the strength of these regiments on their return as there have but few reported their strength. I think it safe to assume that they will average 350 & possibly 400 per regiment. You will also notice that 18 regiments have arrived. The balance may all return this month - probably not. Some are officially & some unofficially reported as re-enlisted but is almost certain that all on list have re-enlisted. My recruits do not have the strength of the old regiment when they left the state. The numbers given include all who have joined at or since their organization. I did not furnish the list you referred to & found. Selby yesterday [illegible] if other regiments had re-enlisted & I mention them [illegible]


& perhaps 5 or 6 which he had heard had re-enlisted. Col Oaks called for a full list yesterday in order to make requisitions for barracks. This old list & mine was [illegible]. This of course I have to do as he has to make the quartermaster build barracks &c. I also sent letter of [illegible][illegible] & telegram if it is [illegible] and really hope you will be able to go to Chicago & receive it. Yours truly A.C. Fuller
