TO THE ADJUTANT GEN. OF THE STATE OF TEXAS
In accordance with your instructions, soon after receiving my Commission, I organized my staff by the appointment of J. W. Wilson my aide de camp; W. J. Sparks Brigader Major, Howard Keys, Quartermaster F. M. Hays, Commissary, desiring others more essential to the organization of the Militia, Myself and Staff were immediately qualified in the form of law and our oath of office were forwarded to you in a subsequent communication.
Enrolling officers were immediately appointed in the several precincts of the counties comprising the brigade with a duplicate of your instructions and an election for field officers was ordered on the first Monday in August.
The work of enrolling has not been fully accomplished but so far as finished I have the honor to report. Neither do I believe that the election was observed in the Second Regiment of my Brigade, which is composed of the militia of Smith County or at least if so I have as yet received no returns.
The companies enrolled and reported to me so far as follows:

I have thus given you a copy of the returns made by me at Quitman by the several enrolling officers. Not in one instance have they forwarded me a duplicate copy and hence I am forced to the necessity of transcribing. The certificates on all are defective but it is impossible to ovserve the due forms of law in the work of organization, or if ao, to make so appear. I hope that the good inten- tions of the people will supply all defects. They are ready to fight for our State if necessary with or without the forms of organization. Respectfully submitted, S. M. Flournoy, BRIG. GEN. 12th BRG. TEXAS MILITIA
