From the Richmond Whig, 4/7/1865
THE RIVER OBSTRUCTIONS are, we believe, being removed as
fast as possible, and forty-eight hours will not elapse, we opine, before we
hear of steamers at Rocketts direct from New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
The river at City Point is filled with a Sutler's fleet, awaiting permits to
enable them to bring their supplies in to Richmond.
