HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF THE OHIO, Huntsville, July 12, 1862.

Lieutenant-Colonel CONKLIN,

Commanding Thirty-fifth Indiana Volunteers, Fayetteville:

SIR: The general commanding directs that you march with your regiments for Elk River Bridge, on Chattanooga road, as heretofore ordered. It will probably be best for you to move via Winchester. On the march you will keep on the alert for the rebel cavalry which has been through that part of the country. You will report your arrival and anything of interest that may occur or that you may observe. Telegraph stations have been ordered to be established at Tullahoma and Cowan. It is not the intention to put your regiment as a guard on the line, but to put it in a position suitable for future movements. You will, however, guard the bridge and railroad while you are near it.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

J. M. WRIGHT,

Assistant Adjutant-General.

It will go to or in the vicinity of Winchester and will be gone but three or four days.

Brigadier-General WOOD,

Commanding Sixth Division:

General Buell directs that you march for Stevenson with your division except one brigade to-morrow. The brigade left should be the one to which the regiments now at or near Decatur belong. In the march you will touch the railroad at this point and at once or two other points, to any of which supplies can be sent you by keeping your staff officers in communication with the staff officers at these headquarters. Procure what forage you can from the country on the march. Report here in person which when your troops reach Indian Creek, some 6 miles west of this place. The other brigade will soon follow.

I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

J. M. WRIGHT,
