Lieutenant Kinsman came in and reported that a Union man, Mr. Somers, who had once been recorder of the city, and who had taken refugeto the mob, I thought it was dangerous for him to have to go through the mob without a strong force, and I directed Lieutenant Kinsman to take my headquarters guard at the St. Charles down to the Custom House with him. The appearance of Somers, guard to wait in our conference, looking out the window at the scene, while the little bunch of troops, gallantly led by Lieutenant Kinsman, took Somers through the crowd. Then the mob gathered about the hotel again, and resumed its shouting and offensive morning to take a look at the condition of the city and its suburbs. We took no guard save an orderly on the box. General Kinsman of my staff was with us. We went up the river in a street parallel with it and about one hundred yards from it. A li

s taken might possibly have a claim. Whether they did or not had not been decided when I was relieved. After the confiscation acts had been passed by Congress, I put them in force and appointed a commission consisting of Major Bell, Lieut.-Col. J. B. Kinsman, and Captain Fuller (Seventy-Fifth New York Volunteers), provost marshal, to take possession of all the sequestered property in the district of Lafourche. This commission was to put every loyal citizen in full possession of his propert and he went home with me, the Bar of New Orleans presented to him a valuable gift in compliment and recognition of his services to them as a jurist. During his absence from New Orleans for some months, because of sickness, I appointed Lieut.-Col. J. B. Kinsman, A. D. C., to fill his place, from whose decisions no appeals were taken. There was an appeal to me in case anybody was dissatisfied with Major Bell's decisions, and we decided cases of very large amounts and of every possible descri

When I went to New Orleans, you will remember, I told you when you said something of my taking some place in the Army of the Potomac, that the jealousies, feuds, and embroilments of the various officers were such that I did not believe I could do much good there, and that for that reason I did not want to take any part in the campaigns at Washington, although it Brevet Maj.-Gen.

We then talked of a favorite project he had of getting rid of the negroes by colonization, and he asked me what I thought of it.

S. Davis, of Boston, was upon my staff, holding the position of assistant adjutant-general of the Department of New England, and went with me to New Orleans. He served through that campaign, joined me in the Department of Virginia and North Carolina, and served until he was relieved late in the summer of 1864 for sickness. He died in China, where he went on a mercantile enterprise. Another of my volunteer aids who left the law books he was writing to join the service with me, was J. Burnham Kinsman, afterwards brevet major-general. He volunteered without pay and without anything but an acting appointment. He served me as long as I was in the service, and distinguished himself very greatly for gallant conduct. He was appointed by the President as lieutenant-colonel in the regular army, and attached to the staff of General Wool, and by the President's request Wool assigned him to serve on my staff. He was afterwards employed by the Secretary of War, serving him directly upon im
