Very respectfully, yours,

HEADQUARTERS FIRST ARMY CORPS,
March 2, 1865.

General R. E. LEE,

Commanding, &c.:

Your order has been received. General Fitz Lee has been notified to be ready and await orders.

J. LONGSTREET,

Lieutenant-General.


HEADQUARTERS FIRST ARMY CORPS,
March 2, 1865.

Major General J. B. KERSHAW,

Commanding Division:

General Longstreet desires you to transfer Bratton's brigade from the right to the left of your line, and move your division to the right so as to occupy the position Bratton now holds. Bratton will thus be brought in contact with his own division, and will again become a part of it.

Respectfully, your obedient servant,

O. LATROBE,

Assistant Adjutant-General.
