After writing to Shepley, Jose wrote a more official report about the 1861 ordnance receipt.

Jose wrote that "invoices and vouchers of ordnance stores were all lost or destroyed by the enemy with all the regimental books & papers at 'Bayou Boeuf.'"

Military success or failure aside, the offices in Washington wanted to ensure that all supplies were accounted for and properly used.
