CAIRO, May 1st, 1862

FRIEND DUNHAM – I have just arrived – will leave for the Tennessee river at 8 o’clock this morning.

I have learned nothing of importance in the shape of news.

I saw a part of the officers of the Second Iowa Cavalry at St. Louis, and was informed that their regiment had been mustered out of the service. I also saw Col. Chambers at St. Louis nearly recovered from his wounds.

I expect to reach Pittsburg Landing by Saturday noon.
