Doc. 54.-fight near Dandridge, Tenn. camp near Strawberry Plains, East-Tennessee, January 19. Wood's division of Granger's corps drove the rebel cavalry out of Dandridge January fifteenth; Sheridan's division came up the sixteenth. There was sharp skirmishing the evening of the sixteenth, but the enemy was driven back. There was a tough fight Sunday, lasting from three o'clock P. M. till dark.

Under date of the twenty-second December, 1863, I was authorized by you to undertake such operations in my department as I might deem best, suggesting conference with Admiral Dahlgren, etc. On January fourteenth, 1864, I wrote you that, unless it would interfere with the views of the War Department, I should occupy the west bank of the St. John's River in Florida very soon, and establish small depots there, preparatory to an advance west at an early day. On January fifteenth, I wrote to the Secretary of War that I had in contemplation the occupation of Florida on the west bank of the St. John's River at a very early day.
