Please let me know where you picket with your cavalry. You ought to watch as high up as Waterloo Bridge, at least. If you do not go up so far, have it done at once, and have your pickets on the river strong.

BEALETON STATION, June 13, 1863.

Brigadier-General PLEASONTON:

Your dispatch of this morning is received. I wish you would send the brigade to Warrenton at once, and send me, in the direction of Little Washington, a force sufficient to ascertain with certainty whether the enemy are moving up into the Valley or not. Waterloo Bridge can be watched from the force at Warrenton. This reconnaissance from Warrenton should leave to-night.

JOHN F. REYNOLDS,

Major-General of Volunteers, Commanding.
