“37. April 3, 10 p.m. General Denikine has agreed to nomination of an officer to succeed him in case of sickness or disability this to be chosen by a council of generals now in session in Sevastopol. It amounts to a transfer duties of commander-in-chief. General Wrangel has arrived at Sevastopol and there seems to be no doubt but that he will be chosen in a few days. McCully.”
