This opinion was concurred in by all the officers of his command, and their memoranda on the subject were made enclosures of Major Anderson's letter. The whole was immediately laid before Lieutenant General Scott, who at once concurred with General Anderson in opinion. On reflection, however, he took full time, consulting with officers both of the Army and Navy, and at the end of four days came reluctantly but decidedly to the same conclusion as before. He also stated at the same time last no such sufficient force was then at the control of the Government, or could be raised and brought on the ground within the time when the provisions in the fort would be exhausted.
