Near Vicksburgh, Jan: 29th 1863.

BRIG GENL' W. A. GORMAN
COMMANDING DISC'T OF HELENA

Send a stem wheel Steamer, with as many troops as it can conveniently carry, to the entrance of Yazoo Pass, for the purpose of cutting the levee and letting the water from the Mississippi in.

The GunBoat by which this is sent will accompany the expedition. The party should remain at the Pass until they see the work effectually done, and then return to Helena

I shall certainly not want Genl' Fitch's Brigade here for several days.

U. S. GRANT.
Maj General.

Copies, DLC-USG, V, 18, 30; DNA, RG 393, Dept. of the Tenn., Letters Sent. On Feb. 1, 1863, Brig. Gen. Willis A. Gorman, Helena, wrote to USG. "Your order to place men at the disposal of Col Wilson to cut the Levee at the mouth of the Yazoo pass, and watch it until the work is effectually done and then explore it as far as possible, has been rec.d And Tomorrow morning at 9 A. M. the force will leave here. No news, except that Genl Burnside has resigned, Genls Franklin & Sumner relieved and Genl Hooker placed in Command of the army of the Potomac Much feeling seems to be manifested from the information I get from my Correspondence from Washington. I trust that a good providence may save that Army from any more misfortune, as it really seems as if the efforts of man have mostly failed The hope of the great West is Concentrating on your efforts to open this great throat of Commerce and I feel the most unbounded Confidence in your Success." ALS, ibid., Letters Received. See letter to Brig. Gen. Willis A. Gorman, Feb. 1, 1863.
