Vicksburg, Mississippi
January 30, 1864

Major General U. S. GRANT, Chattanooga, Tennessee:

Arrived last night. McPherson all ready. Hurlbut behind time. All things favorable thus far for movement on Meridian. General Banks sends an officer to engage for the Red River expedition twenty-five boats. He writes me on the faith of General Halleck that Steele and I are to co-operate with him. March 1 is as early as we should move on Shreveport, and the movements of Admiral Porter should control ours. Your orders are not specific that I should go up Red River after the Meridian movements. Please telegraph me, through Admiral Porter, your orders for myself and Steele.

W. T. SHERMAN, Major-General
