and Lieut Wallen detained, at Detroit, to perform the very duties the

regimental Quarter Masters contemplated Lieut Grant should do. Lieut Wallen's transfer with Lieut Maloney the then Adjt. of the regiment, whose company was at Detroit, was disapproved by Majr Genl Scott. I protested against it, through Majr Genl Gaines, on the ground that it was entailing on this Post an unavailable officer for an available one. Lieut Wallen was ordered here on the earliest opening of navigation, the order has been defeated by Lieut Maloney resigning his adjutantcy, and Lieut Wallen being appointed in his place. I have only two officers here, Lieut Grant is one of them, commands a company, and is Quarter Master and commissary. If the service would permit, I would be glad to get another officer or two, the Captains of both the[se] companies are permanently absent, as is one first Lieutenant. Lt Wallen, —I don't know what has become of Lieut Forsythe, 2d Lieut of I Company: he has never reported, I have heard nothing of him since he was promoted to the Reg.t, the 8th of last October." Both letters were forwarded to Bvt. Maj. Gen. Edmund Pendleton Gaines by Bvt. Maj. Gen. John E. Wool with the endorsement, "It would appear that injustice has been done Lieut Grant Regt. Quarter Master. As the Colonel of the Regiment, who is beyond my control, may have other reasons for the course he has pursued towards Lieut Grant than appears in his letter, the subject is submitted for consideration to the General Commanding of Division." Ibid., Eastern Division, Letters Received.

On Feb. 25, 1849, Lee again wrote to Winship. "I have the honor to just have received Dept Order No. 10, detailing both Lieut Grant and Lieut Hunt on a Gen Court martial to assemble at Oswego on the 1st of March. This leaves me without a company officer, and as muster is on the 28th inst. muster rolls returns &c to be made out, the presence of one officer, at least, with two companies, would but seem indispensable. In the event that the session of the court is likely to be protracted for any considerable time, I would respectfully ask that one of these officers (Lieut Grant) be relieved, and be sent back to his post: Lieut Grant is regimental q. m., and is doing the duties of both commissary & Quarter master." For USG's service on the court see letters of Feb. 27, March 1, 1849. 2nd Lt. Lewis Cass Hunt of Mo., USMA 1847, also served on the court.


To Julia Dent Grant

Adams N. Y.
Feb.y 27th 1849

MY DEAREST JULIA

With a very bad pen, bad ink, and a sheet of Fools Cap paper, furnished by the same Frost that we stoped with when we passed through Adams, I pen you these lines—We are thus far on our journey without difficulty or accident.
