GENTLEMEN-I have the honor to communicate to you, the followReport of the operations of this Department since it was comto my charge, now something more than a year.
Under the organization of the Engineer Department, as adopted previous to my acceptance of the office you have conferred upon me, the Road was to be divided into three divisions, Eastern, Western, and Middle: Edward Miller, Esq., an associate engineer, was assigned to the Western, and W. B. Foster, Jr., to the Eastern division. These gentlemen had entered upon the survey of their respective lines, preto my arrival, under instructions from the president; each with two full corps of assistants. The middle, or mountain division, not having been provided for, I concluded, after a full consideration of the subject, that the interest of the Company would be best pro, by so far altering the organization, as to abolish it altogeth, and extend the eastern and western divisions to the summit of the Allegheny mountains, the natural boundary between them. Under this arrangement, the surveys have since been prosecuted.
