JUNE 223, 1863.
General ROSECRANS, Murfreesborough:
Much obliged for your telegram. Will try to look out for Morgan. Sanders is in East Tennessee. When last heard from he was on the railroad at Lenior. I feel somewhat uneasy him. White, with another force, is probably in the neighborhood of Staunton and the Salt-Works by this time. Hope they will both come out safe. Would it not be a good time to throw some of your mounted force in the direction of Athens, and, if possible, burn the bridge at Caulhoun? But, I suppose, you have just as much as you can swing to without that.
A. E. BURNSIDE,
GLASGOW, June 23, 1863 - 8 a. m.
The following was received this morning:
GALLATIN, [June] 23-4 a. m.
Have just arrived from Carthage. Information was received there tat Morgan left Rome at daylight on the 21st; passed near Middleton and Truesdale's Ferry, 2,300 to 2,500 strong. His men stated he had intended attacking Carthage on the 21st, but was ordered to East Tennessee during the night. A reliable person counted the men. Colonel Stokes does not believe that Morgan is going back, but intends crossing the river above Carthage. I do not think there is immediate at Carthage. The place is fortified, and can be held against 2,500 men with the force now there. Will be in Glasgow to-day, if not otherwise ordered.
D. W. H. DAY,
Major, Commanding Post.
