"Send Washburne to Memphis and I would be glad to have Hunt at Columbus In making up our fighting force we have left inferior officers on the river.

All these stations are a weakness and offer tempting chances for plunder In a day or so there ought to be enough of McPhersons troops at Cairo to clean out Forrest without materially delaying our concentrating along the front."
