To George B. McClellan

November 27, 1861

If Gen. McClellan thinks it proper to make Buell a Major General, enabling Sherman to return to Kentucky, it would rather please me. As Buell, by the letter shown me to-day, agrees with Mr. Guthrie about half a dozen more Brig. Genls. being needed in Ky, that, also might be attended to at the same time.
