Major-General HALLECK, General-in-Chief:

I understand that Generals Ketchum and A. J. Smith are in the department on special service. Cannot they be sent here for duty with the troops? If other generals are not available, I would suggest for appointment J. J. Reynolds, John Love, and Thomas A. Morris, all understood to be at Indianapolis. You know them, I believe. I have not a single brigadier with the force assembling here.

I have information that Buell has or is about to evacuate Nashville and to move into Southern Kentucky; if this be true, neither Bowling Green nor Munfordville should be abandoned. Countermand the order for the evacuation of those places if you have reason to believe my information is true.
