[173] Acknowledge receipt.

I replied at once:
Your dispatch of this morning received. I shall go immediately, although unfit for field-service.

I had been prevented, by the orders of the Administration, from giving my personal attention to military affairs in Mississippi1 at any time since the 22d of January. On the contrary, those orders had required my presence in Tennessee during the whole of that period

1 The reader's attention is called to this fact, because I have been accused of neglecting Mississippi, to give my time to Tennessee.
