"Deliver to enemy's line all your prisioners (not officers), except those guilty of barbarously treating our men, on parole not to serve till exchanged. As already stated no more troops can be sent to Memphis at present. The enemy attacked Boonville yesterday, but was driven back with considerable loss. Please rescind your [or]der about districts. They [can]not be formed yet. As order to send troops to Washington is suspended, do all in your power to reinforce Curtis. It is very possible that he has moved to Madison to open communication with Memphis; if not, he is going down east side of White River. We have no telegraphic communication with him, & can only guess where he is. Do all you can to ascertain."
