"All statements that I expected
to go to Santiago or Porto Rico,
and that I was disgruntled because
I did not go are false." He said
today : "I do want to go to Havana,
and I have so stated a number of
times. I told General Miles that I
was a soldier and had no favors to
ask, but I had the strongest desire
to go to Havana with my troops,
j I presume if there was any large
I movement of the army General
[MileB would command and all I
ask is the command of tho troops
in the lead of that movement.
"It amuses me to hear of General
Bianco's expressed regret that he
did not have a chance to try
conclusions with the Americans,
because peace was declared Blanco
is not a soldier. He is unfit
especially to command, has to go
about Havana in a hack. He
knows absolutely nothing of
modern military tactics. He is in
competent. I know him well, per
sonally, and would like nothing
better than to move against Hav
ana with my corps alone. We
would run over Blanco and his
army without trouble and without
the assistance of any other troops
than the Seventh corps."
When asked if he had any de
finite information in regard to a
movement to Cuba, General Lee
said : "Not a word,though I suppose
the date of the movement will be
coincident with the first move of
the Spaniards homeward. I under
stand the troops sent to Cuba will
be scattered about the island, but
there will of course be a large
garrispn in Havana. There is an
excellent place for a large camp on
high ground south of the city and
near the ocean."
