Holly Springs, Miss. Jan. 6th 1863.
BRIG GENL' I. F. QUINBY
LA FAYETTE, TENN:
I shall go to Memphis, as soon as possible and regulate matters. I am told that things are going at loose ends there. In the meantime you may let Cotton pass into Memphis, but allow no contraband articles to pass out, and specie is one of them.
