The San Francisco Daily Morning Call, August 23, 1864



. . . . .


An order to purchase one thousand dollars worth of blank cartridges, to be divided between the four regiments, was attempted to be reduced to four hundred dollars -- lost -- and a motion to pass it to print in its original form was also lost. This may be presumed to settle the question of blank cartridges finally. The appropriation would have to come from the "Imminent Necessity Fund," and as present that fund is in imminent danger of starvation -- or, in strong Saxon, it is busted.
