To Maj. Gen. Henry W. Halleck

BY TELEGRAPH FROM Memphis [July] 4th 186[2]

To MAJ GEN. HALLECK
GEN.

I have completed arrangements by which I think information may be got from Gen Curtis & which will be reliable if successful in conversation with the gentleman who brought the information, telegraphed yesterday, 1 I find there is a good wagon road from opposite here to Batesville by the way of the Military Road 13 miles thence by Berry's Ferry over the St Francis, on to Jacksonport & Batesville: 2 my impression would be in favor of this Route rather than Steamers up White River to Supply Gen Curtis. In the City one or two teams per Reg.t could supply troops using the balance as a supply train for Curtis Army. I am not prepared to say how many teams this would give but will ascertain immediately.
