Porter, A. B. Admiral, "Commanding Mississippi Squadron." it is inferred from this that you maintain: 1st. The capture of the enemy's property is not a legitimate belligerent right. 2d. That it makes no difference that the property is on transports en route for the enemy's camps and consists of military supplies. 3d. That a belligerent combatant or non-combatant has no right to destroy his own property to prevent it from falling into the hands of the enemy. It is much to be regretted that the usages of civil and nations in war will not be respected in this age of the world. Under the circumstances no remedy remains except to notify you that for every violation of the rights of prisoners under the order cited retaliation will be visited in pled; reserving the privilege of selecting as its subjects those who are most prominent in violating the laws of war, and without regard to rank. (Signed) Thos. H. Holmes. Official: S. S. Anderson, A. A. G.
