To Samuel F. Du Pont

                                             Executive Mansion,
Admiral Dupont              Washington, April 13. 1863.

Hold your position inside the bar near Charleston; or if you shall have left it, return to it, and hold it till further orders. Do not allow the enemy to erect new batteries or defences, on Morris-Island. If he has begun it, drive him out. I do not, herein, order you to renew the general attack. That is to depend on your own discretion, or a further order. A LINCOLN
