Mr. George Lee Brent will report to you as recorder.

You will inquire into the whole official conduct of Commander John K. Mitchell, Confederate States navy, while in command of the steamer “Louisiana,” and in charge of the vessels of the Confederate States navy at and below New Orleans; and report the same to this Department, with your opinion whether the said officer did, or did not, do all in his power to sustain the honor of the flag, and prevent the enemy from ascending the Mississippi river, and if he did not, to what extent did he fail to do so.

Respectfully, your obedient servant,
