Secretary of the Navy Gustavus V. Fox. Robert Means Thompson and Richard Wainwright, eds., Confidential Correspondence of Gustavus V. Fox (New York, 1918-19), II, 153-56. See O. R. (Navy), I, xxiii, 602.

To Brig. Gen. Charles S. Hamilton

Memphis Tenn Jan 20th 1863

BRIG GEN C S HAMILTON
COM'DG DIST WEST TENN

Complaints have come in from Somerville from the few Union men of the outragious conduct of the 7th Kansas and in one case of Col Lee's conduct where he was informed of the status of the party

This was the case of Mr Rivers 1 who called on Lee to try and get him restrain his men and was replied by being made to dismount and give up the animal he was riding. If there are further complaints well substantiated, I wish you to arrest Col Lee and have him tried for incompetency and his Regiment dismounted and disarmed. The conduct of this Regiment at New Albany in their pursuit of Van Doren stopping to plunder the citizens instead of pursuing the enemy when they were so near them and again after Richardson about the 8th of this month they passed near where they knew or at least were informed he was and went on to the town for the purpose of plunder

All the laurels won by the Regiment and their Commander on the pursuit of the enemy from Holly Springs to Coffeeville has been more than counterbalanced by their bad conduct since. Their present course may serve to frighten women and children and helpless old men but will never drive out an armed enemy
