GENERAL: I am now engaging the enemy's rear guard. They have been passing on to this pike since yesterday. Lee's whole army passed through Fountain Dale and Monterey yesterday. I believe Sedgwick is at Fairfield now. I think they are making for Hagerstown.

My troops are encamped at the junction of the Emmitsburg pike and the Fairfield road, the point designated in your dispatch of 10 a. m. I shall remain here until I hear from you or General Meade.

I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant,
