“Inform Col. Fitch that his command will remain under Genl. Curtiss”

July 24 1862, Sent telegram to Gen. Sherman, “Inform Col. Fitch that his command will remain under Genl. Curtiss with the exception of the artillery taken from Memphis — that will be returned.  I telegraphed this to Col. Fitch but suppose from communications just received that he never got my dispatch.  Send all the men, transportation and such baggage to the Col as he may wish to have with him.”
