It seemed to be the opinion of the commander that in future such expeditions should be more under the control of the navy officers. He feared more difficulty for the large vessels after they should leave Albemarle Sound, and was anxious that the gunboats of light draft should be hurried up. General Burnside's force, which is very numerous, was to have been landed on the lower end and east side of the island, under the guns of the war vessels.
