A detachment from the Eighth New York Heavy Artillery, Second Division of this corps, is in charge of six Coehorn mortars near Fort Morton, on the Ninth Corps front. If it can be relieved conveniently by a detachment from troops of the Ninth Corps and ordered back to its regiment, I wish it may be done. When the change of position in the two corps was made the detachment was left at the especial request of the commanding officer of the Ninth Army Corps.
