I do riot feel justified in acceding to your request, as I do not propose to suspend the blockade under any circumstances, until the operations above me are concluded. I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant, John Pope, Brigadier-General Commanding. Major-General J. P. McCown, Commanding C. S.A., etc. Col. J. Kirby Smith's report. headquarters Second brigade, First division, army of the Mississippi, camp near New-Madrid, Mo., March 15, 1862. General: In compliance with your instructions, I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by the Second brigade of your division, under my command, in the action of the day before yesterday, (thirteenth instant.) The brigade reached a point in front of the enemy's lower fort, and within supporting distance of our siege-batteries,
protection, and literally hundreds of civilians who wished to avail themselves of the amnesty requested his favorable indorsement. It was my duty to examine these applications and lay them before him; and seldom indeed was one refused. General J. Kirby Smith, in command west of the Mississippi, did not surrender with the other armies in rebellion, and even when his forces yielded he fled to Mexico. But in a month or two he wrote to Grant, applying to be placed on the same footing with those who had surrendered earlier. Grant thereupon obtained the assurance of the President that if Smith would return and take the prescribed oath, he should be treated exactly as if he had surrendered and been paroled. In September, 1865, Alexander Stephens, the VicePres-ident of the Southern Confederacy, appealed to General Grant in the following letter from Fort Warren in Boston Harbor, where he was imprisoned, asking for his release on parole or bail. This was soon afterward granted.
