ADMIRAL: I have the honor to transmit a copy of the survey showing the position of our lines with reference to Spanish Battery. Our heavy batteries will probably be ready to open at 8 a. m. Will you please order the monitors to open at the same time. I will signal the time for opening. Eight 30-pounder rifles will open at the same time upon Batteery Huger and the rebel gun-boats.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

We have got our iron-clads up as far as is considered safe from torpedoes. We cannot well sweep for them under fire. We have had one of our iron-clads sunk by torpedoes already. When do you expect to get your heavy guns to work?
J. S. PALMER,
Commodore, Commanding First Division.
