ow too late for me to give any advice in reference to the proposed scheme of Captain Fox. I fear that its result cannot fail to be disastrous to all concerned. Even with his boat at our walls, the loss of life (as I think I mentioned to Mr. Fox) in unloading her will more than pay for the good to be accomplished by the expeditColonel Lamon's remark convinced me that the idea, merely hinted at to me by Colonel Fox, would not be carried out. We shall strive to do our duty, though I fran he has done in other particulars, by saying, with reference to the visit of Captain Fox to the Fort, that, having visited Anderson at Fort Sumter, a plan had been ag the garrison ( Civil War in America, authorized translation, vol. 1., p. 137).
