Headquarters,

Richmond, January 18, 1865

(Received 9 o’clock.)

Hon. James A. Seddon,

                        Secretary of War:

            I fear from dispatch of Bragg he has been unable to save armaments of Forts Holmes and Caswell. Heavy guns will be necessary to defend approach by river. Can any be supplied?

RE Lee.
