HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF THE CUMBERLAND, Camp near La Vergne, December 29, 1862-8.30 a. m.
General R. B. MITCHELL,
The general commanding directs you to say to the Anderson Cavalry that they had a temporary organization with which they could perfectly have gone into the field. They have disorganized themselves, and he will not submit to their whims. If they do not come up to the front at once he will disgrace them, as well as make them otherwise bitterly regret their folly. He cannot himself appoint officers; he can only, till he hears from Governor Curtin, make acting appointments. This he has now done; let them now march.
By command of Major-General Rosecrans:
J. P. GARESCHE,
Chief of Staff.
HEADQUARTERS POST, Nashville, Tenn., December 29, 1862.
