. . . writing on the 9th gives what is probably the actual decision of England and France as to American affairs.  “I have only time for this mail to say that Great Britain and France have come to an agreement to let the north play its last card.  If she is successful with the Burnside and Mississippi expeditions, there will be no interference either unnecessary altogether, or else an easy matter.”
