U. S. GRANT.
Brig Genl.

Copies, DNA, RG 393, USG Letters Sent; DLC-USG, V, 1, 2, 3. See preceding letter. On Aug. 19, 1861, 1st Lt. William Hoelcke sent USG a report of engineer operations in and around Ironton. "Enclosed you will find a report of 2nd Lieutenant Abry of the Engineer Department. I myself found a squad of one of the Regiments, which resembled far more a crowd of Rowdies than soldiers. The officers themselves do not know their duty and ought to be instructed according to army Regulations Article 39 Paragraph 888 Page 114 Edition of 1861. We need the strictest discipline to succeed; if we are not supported in every way by other Officers, it is impossible to finish the works commenced here. I think it would be proper to have with every working party an armed guard of one Sergeant and 10 men, to arrest on the spot every man, who shows disobedience. For to morrow morning 6 o'cl. I want: 1 a fatigue party of one Officer and 40 men without arms to be at the 32 pounder on the road from Pilot Knob to Caledonia, if possible also the above mentioned Guard. 2 a Box waggon with two mules. The driver has to report himself at the Courthouse to morrow morning o'clock." ALS, DNA, RG 393, District of Southeast Mo., Letters Received.
