General William Lee's division. This detachment will be furnished by me with the necessary tools, they will be armed with pistols only, and will serve during the contemplated movement of the cavalry as a mounted engineer troop, under my direction. I would designate Lieutenant Johnson, Company A, Fourth South Carolina Regiment, and Lieutenant Banskett, Sixth South Carolina Regiment, as suitable officers to take charge of the detail from General Butler's division. This detail will be furnished with tools as soon as it reports to me at these headquarters. The detail from General William Lee's division will report at General William Lee's headquarters to Lieutenant F. Robertson, engineer officer, to whom I will forward instructions to furnish tools, &c.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant.

JNumbers F. LANNEAU,

Lieutenant and Engineer Officer, Hampton's Corps.

N. B.-It is desirable that the details should be made up as far as practicable of men accustomed to the use of the ax.
