To Brig. Gen. John A. McClernand
Head Quarters, Dist. S. E. Mo|
Cairo, Sept. 13th 1861|
Whilst on the Mo. side of the river to-day I planned a
reconnoisance from Birds Point towards Charleston and from
Norfolk towards Belmont, and gave the necessary orders at the
latter place whilst there.
To-night I gave orders for the expedition from Birds Point
and directed a copy of the order to be sent to you. Maj. Brayman
informs me that it was not sent however. I will furnish it tomorrow.
