CAPTAIN OF STEAMER:

SIR: You will have your boat in readiness at 9 o'clock this evening, in the middle of the river, at Young's Point, ready to move at the signal given by me. I will be alongside, and give the signal in person to each boat. The line of boats will be as follows: Tigress (flagship), Empire City, Moderator, J. W. Cheeseman, Anglo-Saxon, and Horizon. You will have your crew in their proper places, with instructions to remain at their posts. This is an important movement, and I trust every officer and man will do his duty.

Colonel Clark B. Lagow, aide-de-camp to General Grant, is on board the Tigress, and will take charge of the fleet under way.

Yours, respectfully,

GEO. W. GRAHAM,

Commanding Fleet,

We then cut the barge loose from the stern and rounded back on her, and headed down stream,
