HEADQUARTERS THIRD DIVISION, FIFTH CORPS, Near Emmitsburg, July 6, 1863.

Brigadier General S. WILLIAMS,

Assistant Adjutant-General, Army of the Potomac:

GENERAL: I would respectfully urge that the Second Brigade of my division, now at Alexandria, be ordered to join the division. Its separation was merely temporary, and there are many considerations that render its return desirable. It is over 1, 800 strong, and composed of men who have often me the enemy. Both officers and men ardently desire to join with their comrades in driving the enemy from their soil, and I respectfully solicit the action of the general commanding the Army of the Potomac in securing their return.

Very respectfully, &c.,

S. W. CRAWFORD,

Brigadier-General, Commanding Division.
