ry did not concur in any of my views, when I begged him to procure for me an early view with the President, that I might make one effort more to save the forts and the Union. By appointment the Secretary accompanied me to the President, December 15, when the same topics (Secessionism, &c.,) were again pretty fully discussed. There being at the moment (In the opinion of the President) no danger of an early secession, beyond South Carolina, the President, in reply to my argument for immedn the possession of the United States, and not a battery below them could have been created by the Secessionists; consequently, the access to those forts from the sea would now (the end of March) be unobstructed and free. * The same day, December 15, I wrote the following note: "Lieutenant-General Scott begs the President to pardon him for supplying, in this note, what he omitted to say this morning at the interview with which he was honored by the President."Long prior to the force

e, in my present condition, to make an analysis of the ex-President's long reply, I avail myself of a substitute furnished by an accidental visitor, who has kindly marked the few points which he thinks may require some slight notice at my hands. 1. To account for not having garrisoned sufficiently the Southern forts named against anticipated treason and rebellion, according to my many recommendations, beginning October 29, 1860, repeated the next day, and again more earnestly December 13, 15, 28, and 30, the ex-President says: "There were no available troops within reach." Now, I have nowhere said that either of those forts, even with the reinforcements indicated, would have had a war garrison.
