Brigadier General HENRY HETH,

Commanding Second Division, Balin's Cross-Roads:

This station is near the month of Little Tennessee River. The whole of this command will move to Kingston as soon as it can be put in marching condition. It will be kept near the railroad until it can be recuperated. You will make requisitions for such supplies as you want.

Very respectfully,

E. CUNNINGHAN,

Lieutenant and Acting Aide-de-Camp.
