My whole force cleared, including Morgan's, will be about 8,500. Steedman, with two brigades, will reach Cowan to-morrow night. The One hundred and eighth Ohio Volunteer Infantry left for Bridgeport by railroad this morning. Shall start on Tuesday. My health worthless.

HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF THE CUMBERLAND,

Trenton, September 6, 1863-10 p.m.

Major-General STANLEY,

Chief of Cavalry:

Your dispatches of this morning received. The general commanding desires you to push the enemy sharply, and if possible strike the railroad. It will probably be a week before Minty can join you, possibly more, and we cannot wait. The enemy appear to be preparing for making a stand at Chattanooga, and it is of the utmost importance that his line of communication be broken. Forrest and a part of Wheeler's force being in the neighborhood of Chattanooga, you can attack with impunity any mounted force the enemy may have in the direction of Rome and the railroad.
