Copies, DLC-USG, V, 4, 5, 7, 8, 88; DNA, RG 393, USG Hd. Qrs. Correspondence. In accordance with USG's request, William S. Hillyer, Clark B. Lagow, and John Riggin, Jr., were all confirmed as col. on July 17, 1862, to rank from May 3 on the staff of Maj. Gen. Henry W. Halleck, though assigned to USG. On April 18, Brig. Gen. John A. Logan wrote to U. S. Representatives Elihu B. Washburne and James C. Robinson of Ill. "My Christian friends, enclosed you will find copy of letter from Genl Grant, which explains itself, these two Gentlemen are deserving officers and if you can aid in any way to have them promoted as desired it will be gratifying to their numerous friends here and elsewhere." ALS, DLC-Elihu B. Washburne. The USG letter is no longer attached, but was probably the letter about Hillyer and Lagow.

On May 6, Washburne wrote to USG. "I have the pleasure of enclosing you herewith the appointments of your aids Hillyer, Riggin and Lagow, with the rank of Colonel. The glorious victory you won at Pittsburgh Landing has evoking much criticism from the men who are never satisfied with anything, but who always keep out of harm's way, and from the cowardly scoundrels who fled from the field. I took occasion the other day in the House to ventilate the matter a little. I send you my remarks. But let 'em howl—'Truth is omnipotent and public justice certain.' I have just received your letter in regard to Dr. Simons, and as soon as the Sec'y of War returns from Yorktown I will see him on the subject. Regards to Rawlins and Rowley." ALS, CSmH. See letter to Edwin M. Stanton, April 20, 1862.
