The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant: December 9, 1862 - March 31, 1863 - Vol. 7

If I do send vessels below it will be the best vessels. I have, and there will be nothing left to attack Hayne's Bluff in case it should be deemed necessary to try it. It will require some little preparation to send these vessels below. Coal & provisions are wanted—they cannot well do without. With the force Farragut now has he can easily dispense with one vessel to patrol the Coast as far as Grand Gulf, while we are preparing this thing. I will come over and see you. I have been quite unwell all night, and not able to move about much. Before making a gunboat move I should like to get the vessels back from the Yazoo Pass Expedition."

Gen. McClernand has made application for the 18th Ill. regiment. 3 If you can send it as well as not you may do so. As they are mounted however, and no more mounted men are required here, it may not be advisable to send it. Felling every desire to gratify Gen. McClernand in every possible, consistently with the good of the service, I leave this with you, with the understanding
