To Edwin M. Stanton

It seems by the within that there is danger of the different religious denominations having some collision in their ministering among the colored people about Port-Royal, and perhaps else-where. I should think each church should minister according to it’s own rules, without interference by others differing from them; and if there still be difficulties about places of worship, a real christian charity, and forbearance on the part of all might obviate it. With these views, I submit the subject to the Secretary of War.
