On the same day, USG telegraphed to Maj. Gen. Henry W. Halleck. "If the 17th Ill. Cavalry is unassigned order it to St. Louis to report to Gen. Rosecrans."

On April 29, 11:00 P. M., Rosecrans telegraphed to USG. "Genl Sherman is urgent that the dismounted cavalry of his command should be sent forward without horses. I telegraph you direct that you may give such instructions as may be necessary. I repeat to you what I have already

stated. in presence of secret dangers which I know to exist and hope soon to circumvent, and the posture of affairs in arkansas and Louisiana to leave this depot without adequate force would be most hazardous. If the rgiments of infantry sent to garrison Columbus & Paducah were sent back I could send two or three of the dismounted cavalry regiments to the front. Theose regiments were eminently qualified by discipline and order for the work—while the lack of these qualities in the cavalry has given rise to frequent disorder and complaints already. Please direct—Rest assured that what I say about secret dangers is well considered and based on facts" ALS (telegram sent), ibid., RG 107, Telegrams Collected (Unbound); telegram received, ibid., Telegrams Collected (Bound); ibid., RG 108, Letters Received.

To Julia Dent Grant

Culpepper C. H. Va.
Apl. 30th 1864.

DEAR JULIA,

This is the last time I shall write to you—this month. We are not yet off as you see. I am growing impatient to be off but must wait completion of preparations. I have not a word to write you except to let you know that I am well. You are no doubt enjoying your visit very much but do you not think it would be better for you to be with the children? You can write me long letters telling me where you have been, who seen &c. &c. —Have you heard from the children lately? I wrote to Louisa Boggs to insist on the children writing me a joint letter every week.

Remember me to Col. & Mrs. Hillyer. Kisses for Jess and you.

ULYS.

ALS, DLC-USG.
