MOREHEAD CITY, North Carolina
The storm has subsided. We put to sea, Mr. Chase to the south, on his proposed tour as far as New Orleans, and I for James River. I composed a message to send to General Halleck upon my arrival:
To Major General Halleck, Richmond
After your dispatch to Mr. Stanton of Apl. 26, I cannot have any friendly
intercourse with you. I will come to City Point tomorrow, and march with my
troops and I prefer we should not meet.
W. T. Sherman, Major General
