To Ulysses S. Grant

A messenger is coming to you on the business contained in your despatch. Detain the gentleman in comfortable quarters until he arrives & then act upon the message he brings, as far as applicable, it having been made up to pass through Gen. Ord’s hands, & when the gentlemen were supposed to be beyond our lines.
