Camp at Walnut Hills, Near Vicksburg, Mississippi
I talked to General Blair at Snyder’s Bluff last night and he was spitting mad. General McClernand has penned an article for the newspaper that praises his own troops and disrespects the effort of others. Blair has declared that he will leave the army if McClernand doesn’t. I have showed this to McPherson and he is outraged. I will write my concerns to General Grant. I hope he will use this opportunity to be shot of General McClernand.
