To Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman

Head Quarters, Mil. Div. of the Miss.
Nashville Ten. Jan.y 15th 1864

MAJ. GEN. W. T. SHERMAN,
COMD. G DEPT. OF THE TEN.
GEN.

Enclosed I send you copy of a letter just received from Gen. Halleck, 1 one from him to Steele, 2 and my letter of this date to Halleck. The latter contains all the instructions I deem necessary to you in your present move. Your dispatch suggesting the move on Meredian is received and approved. 3 Nearly all the troops in Thomas' and Dodge's Commands, having less than one year to serve, have reinlisted and many of them been furloughed. This with the fact that Longstreet's presence in East Tennessee makes it necessary for me to keep always ready a force to meet him will prevent me doing much more than is indicated in my letter to Halleck. I will have however both Thomas & Logan ready so that if the enemy should weaken himself much in front they can advance. I see no special reason now for keeping up the force from Memphis to Corinth any longer. If you think proper therefore you may abandon the whole of that line. Should you do so order all the locomotives and cars on the road shipped to this place at once. Whilst you are at Vicksburg order the shipment of all cars that can be spared from that road also. One locomotive and ten cars is sufficient to keep there.

I am General, very respectfully
your obt. svt.
U. S. GRANT
Maj. Gen. Com
