yesterday morning by about 400 of the enemy's cavalry. I suppose it was a marauding party. But be on your guard, and communicate and co-operate with Brigadier-General Preston.
DUBLIN, July 8, 1863.
Colonel H. L. GILTNER,
Your telegram received. Do you understand the force that captured Caudillo as threatening the Salt Works/ I suppose it was only a marauding party. If any force is moving on the Satl-Works, General Williams, commanding at that point, has orders to co-operate with General Preston. Where is General Prestoin?

It is of vital importance that we should know the position and movements of Rosecrans. The general desires you to send a small force and many scouts on his right flank to get information. Forrest is doing the same on his left. Please report every item as fast as learned.
W. W. MACKALL,
Chief of Staff.
[P. S.]-Send this to Colonel [H. W.] Walter by the best mounted courier you can get to Trenton, and repeat it by railroad.
