To Brig. Gen. James C. Veatch

Memphis Jan 22 1863

BRIG GENL J C VEATCH
COMMD'G DISTRICT OF MEMPHIS

I would suggest of having all the roads leading into the city except about three strongly Barricaded so that vehicles or animals cannot get out or in and require all travel to pass by the open road These three could be pickited and all persons attempting to enter the city or pass out by any other route should be arrested

From the number of horses being stolen, and even Soldiers caught and paroled in the street 1 very stringent regulations will have to be made

If the proper goverment of the city requires it I will not oppose driving out every man woman and child who will not live strictly up to all requirements
