"Dispatch recd Will order Logan to move as soon as relieved by Lauman & will Lauman to move immediately" Telegram received, ibid., Telegrams Received. "What disposition shall I make of the 26th Ill Col Loomis whose regt is now here & of the 15th Mich now at Grand Junction Genl Denver has eleven regts or twelve including the 109th which has been disarmed" Telegram received, ibid. ; copy, ibid., 17th Army Corps, Letters Sent. On the same day, Lt. Col. John A. Rawlins telegraphed to McPherson. "The 15th Michigan has been assigned to Denver's Division in place of the 25th Indiana ordered here.

On Jan. 16, McPherson telegraphed to USG. "I am just in receipt of orders assigning me to the command of a portion of the forces to operate against Vicksburg. I cannot express to you the gratification it gives me, and I shall most assuredly do my utmost to merit your confidence. I shall leave here as soon as Gen'l Logan's Division is on the march probably to morrow, as Gen'l Lauman was ordered last night to move forthwith. The roads however are in a horrible condition, and the movements will necessarily be slow. But as Logan and his whole Division are keen to go, they will move to Memphis as rapidly as circumstances will admit. I intend to send out a Cavalry expedition this morning, to try and break up the Guerillas in north and west of Summerville, as they could be tracked to their place of rendezvous, but the roads are so very bad, and the horses ball up so badly with snow, that they cannot travel, I was forced to abandon it for the present." Copies (2), ibid., 17th Army Corps, Letters Sent. O.R., I, xvii, part 2, 569. On the same day, USG telegraphed to McPherson. "You may come into Memphis and take immediately charge of troops designated to form part of the river Expedition. General Hamilton will command all others in the District of West Tennessee" Copies, DLC-USG, V, 18, 30; DNA, RG 393, Dept. of the Tenn., Letters Sent.
