To Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman

St Louis, Mo. Jany 31st 1864.

MAJ GEN'L W. T. SHERMAN.
COM'DG DEPT OF THE TENN.
GEN'L:

I understand the authorities at Memphis, Tenn, have seized the little steamer "Wenona," to be used as a Picket Boat. If not absolutely necessary for the public service I wish you would order her release. I know the owner of the Wenona, and have for years, and if there is a person on the Miss. River who will conform to regulations and restrictions without watching, it is Mr. C. W. Ford, one of the owners of this Steamer. For this reason I would myself exempt his steamer from seizure if another could be got suitable for the purpose required.

I come here to see my oldest boy who has been dangerously ill of Typhoid Pneumonia. He is now regarded by his Physician as out of danger. I leave here this afternoon. 1

Yours Truly
U. S GRANT.
Maj Gen'l.
