General orders received

[I have proofread this transcription]
[I have added few of these orders to the calendar, since most have little or nothing to do with the regiment. Only those whose dates are linked to the calendar appear in the calendar.]
[This consists of 8 manuscript pages, numbered 13 through 20. Page 19 is blank. Page 18 ends with order 112, dated 3 October 1863, and page 20 begins with order 144, dated 20 December 1863]
