Dear General,

Col. Gantt went to St. Louis today, leaving at 2.30.1 Of course I did
not see him. You will find him there.

For Heaven's sake bear in mind that we must have vigor, capacity &
honesty. If F---- has these qualities sustain him. If not, let nothing pre-
vent you from taking the bull by the horns.2 We have had enough of
dilly dallying, temporizing and disgrace. Let us now have decision,
action & honor. May God bless you!

Yours faithfully
S P CHASE

Gen. Cameron.

West Point graduate and Missouri attorney Thomas Tasker Gantt, serving since
August as judge advocate on George B. McClellan's staff, had played a role in the admin-
istration's efforts to prevent secession in Missouri. The Bench and Bar of St. Louis . . . ( St. Louis, 1884), 435-36; Parrish, Turbulent Partnership, 31; Francis Bernard Heitman, Historical Register and Dictionary of the United States Army, . . . 2 vols. ( Washington, D.C., 1903), 1:444.
Cameron, in Missouri to investigate charges against Frémont, carried an order--
to be used at Cameron's discretion--for Frémont's dismissal. Basler, Collected Works, 4:549-50; Bradley, Cameron, 194.

Treasury Department,
October 8, 1861.

Sir,

Your letter of the 2d instant, together with the tabular statement of
articles shipped from Louisville to Southern Kentucky, is received. I
think the statement shows that, in general, the Surveyor has success-
fully observed, the just medium between a too liberal and a too re-
strictive policy in regard to shipments.
