aited for the arrival of General Banks, who, however, did not come till some days after. These two divisions participated in the whole of General Banks's unfortunate Red River expedition, and were delayed so long up Red River, and subsequently on the Mississippi, that they did not share with their comrades the successes and glories of the Atlanta campaign, for which I had designed them; and, indeed, they did not join our army till just in time to assist General George H. Thomas to defeat General Hood before Nashville, on the 15th and 16th of December, 1864. General Grant's letter of instructions, which was brought me by General Butterfield, who had followed me to New Orleans, enjoined on me, after concluding with General Banks the details for his Red River expedition, to make all necessary arrangements for furloughing the men entitled to that privilege, and to. hurry back to the army at Huntsville, Alabama. I accordingly gave the necessary orders to General McPherson, at Vicksburg

McPherson had also been of the same class at West Point with Hood, Schofield, and Sheridan. We agreed that we ought to be un his left rear the country was heavily wooded. Hood, during the night of July 21st, had withdrawn fttle after noon till into the night. A part of Hood's plan of action was to sally from Atlanta at tnes seven times, and was seven times repulsed.

going to you for purposes of transportation. Hood has Thomas close in Nashville. I have said allnce, in which he promised me that he would ruin Hood if he dared to advance from Florence, urging menk he should have assumed the offensive against Hood from Pulaski, in the direction of Waynesburg. . I still hope he will outmanceuvre and destroy Hood. As to matters in the Southeast, I think Har the 1st of December. As before described, General Hood had three full corps of infantry — S. D. Led by Major-General Wilson, watching closely for Hood's initiative. This force aggregated about thnot only of defending Nashville, but of beating Hood in the open field. Yet Thomas remained inside ng in the capture of Savannah and the defeat of Hood's army in Tennessee. In order that all may uhas been very hard work to get Thomas to attack Hood.

I remhe organization of new armies from their broken fragments. Hood is now retreating, with his army broken and demoralized. H about Pocotaligo or Coosawhatchie? I have thought that, Hood being so completely wiped out for present harm, I might bri wisdom. I did not want them to cast in our teeth what General Hood had once done in Atlanta, that we had to call on their es on which Lee depends for his command. I have no doubt Hood will bring his army to Augusta. Canby and Thomas should peama as far as possible, to keep employed at least a part of Hood's army; or, what would accomplish the same thing, Thomas mitheir forage, and they will get tired of it.

avor to catch us inland somewhere between Columbia and Raleigh? I knew full well at the time that the broken fragments of Hood's army (which had escaped from Tennessee) were being hurried rapidly across Georgia, by Augusta, to make junction in my frand that he should cover the left flank against Wheeler, who hung around it. I wanted to reach Columbia before any part of Hood's army could possibly get there. Some of them were reported as having reached Augusta, under the command of General Dick we were bound for Charlotte, to which point I heard that Beauregard had directed all his detachments, including a corps of Hood's old army, which had been marching parallel with us, but had failed to make junction with the forces immediately opposing enemy. Recruits have come in so rapidly at the West that Thomas has now about as much force as he had when he attacked Hood. I have stopped all who, under previous orders, would go to him, except those from Illinois. Fearing the possibility o
