To Simon Cameron

Hon. Sec. of War Executive Mansion Sept. 18. 1861

My dear Sir: To guard against misunderstanding I think fit to say that the joint expedition of the Army and Navy agreed upon some time since, and in which Gen. T. W. Sherman was and is to bear a conspicuous part, is in no wise to be abandoned, but must be ready to move by the first of, or very early in, October. Let all preparations go forward accordingly. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
