Colonel MAX WEBER.
DEAR COLONEL: I learn with great regnet that your men and others under your command still continue to commit depredations against the property of the inhabitans of this island. It seems that they pass from the fort over which you have command to the land above by boats. This must and shall stop. These people are worthy, loyal citizens and have taken the oath to support the Constitution of the United States, and they ought to and shall be protected in their rights of property and person, and I shall in future use all the power under my control to see that they are protected. This passage by boats must cease from this date, and if it cannot be prevented by any other means I shall use my artillery against all the boats I may see pass. I have promited these people protection and intend to keep my promise good.
Yours, very truly,
RUSH C. HAWKINS,
HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF PENNSYLVANIA,
