T. S. BOWERS,
NASHVILLE, TENN., February 16, 1864-6 p.m. [Received 12.30 a.m.,17th.]
Major General H. W. HALLECK,
General Allen telegraphed me that General Banks had taken a large amount of river transportation to New Orleans, preparatory to a move up Red River; also that a staff officer was collecting transportation for Sherman for the same move. This was crippling us here for transportation, and I stopped it. I expected Sherman, however, to go to Shreveport and form a junction with Steele's movement if Banks has not the force to send. I would suggest that Sherman himself go in person if a part of his troops go.
