WILMINGTON, April 14, 1864

General S. COOPER,

Dispatch in cipher received. Brigade ordered to move. One regiment (Seventeenth), the strongest, is on the harbor 25 miles from here. The movement of the others leaves me utterly defenseless. The first train goes at once.

W. H. C. WHITING,

Major-General

APRIL 14, 1864.

[Colonel J. N. WHITFORD:]

COLONEL: The enemy are making some demonstrations below on the other side of the river. The general directs that you keep on the lookout and report promptly anything from your front. Keep your men together and ready to be under arms at any moment. It may be necessary to move you in this direction. If you are attacked, however, hold your position.

Very respectfully,

P. B. HOOE,

Assistant Adjutant-General.

General Corse wants one or two men as guides around this place. Please send them mounted. They should know the Wilmington, White Hall, Dover, Neuse, the Trent roads, &c.
