our right. I believe we can whip him in any fair fight, even by attacking.
If you wish, I can push forward again and see what is going on in my front, if you are still in doubt about the enemy's movements.
I am very tired, or I would come down to see you.
G. K. WARREN.
[P. S.]-The officers of the corps are very much delighted with your compliment, and I am more than pleased-am very grateful.
SIGNAL STATION, GENERAL WARREN'S HEADQUARTERS, October 15, 1863-9. 25 p. m.
The enemy, I believe, had a thin picket line at dark along Bull Run. We could see a little force at Manassas, but could not say how much. I think there is no considerable force in my front.
G. K. WARREN,
HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF THE POTOMAC, October 15, 1863. (Received 6. 30 a. m., 16th.)
Buford reports he still needs assistance. Send a brigade at early daylight. Wolf Run Ford is on Bull Run, 1 1/4 miles below Union Mills. It is laid down on the McDowell map.

Colonel J. C. KELTON,
The Fifth Wisconsin will leave for Washington this afternoon. Shall I arm the new organizations coming in from the interior of the State? It will perhaps save time to send them on direct.
ED. R. S. CANBY,
WASHINGTON, D. C., October 15, 1863-6. 20 p. m.
New York City:
I think all troops from the interior should be sent on direct.
