Hellcat-

  You are correct that the 15 January 1861 date does not compute with any report being sent to President Jefferson Davis.

  Jefferson Davis was named Provisional President of the CSA on 09 February and inaugurated on 18 February. The convention to form the Confederate Government began in Montgomery, AL on 04 Feb.

  Perhaps the report of what happened on 15 January was actually sent at a later date.
