Major General WILLIAM NELSON,

Commanding, &c., Louisville, Ky.:

General Ketchum informs me that five Illinois regiments are under orders for Louisville and ten more will be sent next week. Granger's command is gone. Two hundred wagons are on the way to Louisville or being loaded on boats for that place. Make requisitions loaded on boats for that place. Make requisitions for transportation or anything else you want. Enemy has fallen back from here I think. Am waiting further advices from the front before sending you more troops from here. Have you any intelligence from Buell and is the surrender of Munfordville certain? Send back the boats for troops.
