Cabinet Meets but Discusses Little

January 30, 1863

Navy Secretary Gideon Welles writes: “But little at the Cabinet. Chase is quite dejected, and manifested some rather suppressed irritation towards Blair and Seward as he sat beside me. Neither of them saw it; I was glad they did not. Blair says [dismissed general]  Fitz John Porter is disliked by the army with the exception of [General George b.] McClellan, but is his special confidant. The President seemed to know this, but the disaffection as stated by Blair was more general than he supposed.”
