BY TELEGRAPH FROM Corinth [July] 24th 1862
TO MAJ GENL. W. T. SHERMAN
Inform Col. Fitch that his command will remain under Genl. Curtiss with the exception of the artillery taken from Memphis —that will be returned. I telegraphed this to Col. Fitch but suppose from communications just received that he never got my despatch. Send all the men, transportation, and such baggage to the Col as he may wish to have with him
