To Maj. Gen. James B. McPherson

[Dec. 31, 1862]

MAJ GEN J B MCPHERSON
ABBEVILLE MISS

I saw a man who said he had heard somebody else say that some one he had forgotten who, had seen somebody else who had seen a Copy of the Chicago Times of the 27th which said that Lee was near Washington Halleck was removed the place offered to McClellan Cabinet dissolved 1 and things generally in confusion. I received a dispatch from Halleck dated Washington Dec 27th, 12.30 P. M signed General-in-Chief. 2 Sullivan is out after Forrest and is supposed to have him in a tight place. The Tennessee river has risen and our troops from Corinth and probably from Fort Henry have destroyed all the flats on the river. Cars will be running to Memphis by the 3rd and to Columbus by the 12th Jany Any news I get I will send to you for distribution

U S GRANT
Maj Gen

Copies, DLC-USG, V, 18, 30; DNA, RG 393, Dept. of the Tenn., Letters Sent.

1.
Only this portion of the news had any validity: both Secretary of State William H. Seward and Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase had resigned. By Dec. 22, 1862, both had agreed to resume their duties. Lincoln, Works, VI, 11-13.
2.
Probably the telegram of Dec. 27 from Maj. Gen. Henry W. Halleck to Maj. Gen. Stephen A. Hurlbut. "Memphis must be held at all hazards. I have asked General Curtis to re-enforce you. Endeavor to communicate with General Grant; also with gunboats down the river. There are none above." O. R., I, xvii, part 2, 496.
