HDQRS. DEPARTMENT OF THE OHIO,

Numbers 136

W. P. ANDERSON,

Assistant Adjutant-General.

WASHINGTON, D. C., August 20, 1863.

Major-General GRANT, Vicksburg, Miss.:

GENERAL: Immediately on the receipt of your recommendations for promotions, dated July 27, 1863, I approved and submitted them to the Secretary of War. All vacancies of major-general had been previously filled. I tried all I could to keep some open for your army, but failed. Only a part of those recommended for brigadier-generals could be appointed at present. My object in getting the appointments on colonel Rawlins' statement, without waiting for your official letter, was to prevent everything from being gobbled up before your army could get a chance.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

H. W. HALLECK,

General-in-Chief.
