Commanding First Brigade:

GENERAL: You will move your command to-morrow morning to Deep Run, between Hartwood and Grove Church, on the Morrisville road.

You will see to this personally, on an inspection which you will make of your command, that each man has three days' rations and 14 pounds of grain before you march. You will place every man capable of doing duty, now on special duty (provided he can be spared from that duty), in the ranks, that your command may be as strong and efficient as possible.

All dismounted men and men having unserviceable horses will report at daylight to the division quartermaster.
