Resolution Requesting Dispatches of Major Robert Anderson

MR. POWELL. I ask leave to offer a resolution before the Senator from Wisconsin proceeds:

Resolved, That the President be requested, if in his opinion not incompatible with the public interest, to communicate to the Senate the dispatches of Major Robert Anderson to the War Department during the time he has been in command at Fort Sumter.

The Resolution was considered by unanimous consent, and agreed to.
