HEADQUARTERS TWENTY-FIRST ARMY CORPS,

Jasper, Tenn., September 3, 1863.

Brigadier-General GARFIELD,

Chief of Staff,&c.:

GENERAL: I have the honor of making the following extracts from the reports of the divisions of this corps, showing the amount of supplies on hand at their respective dates:

HEADQUARTERS FIRST DIVISION, TWENTY-FIRST ARMY CORPS,

Jasper, Tenn., September 2, 1863.

I will have rations on hand to the 23rd instant, inclusive, which could be made to do to the 30th; perhaps longer if we meet with no loss.

TH. J. WOOD,

Brigadier-General, Commanding.

HEADQUARTERS SECOND DIVISION, TWENTY-FIRST ARMY CORPS,

Camp on Little Sequatchie River, September 2, 1863.

Full rations are in the hands of the commissaries of the brigades up to and inclusive of the 10th instant, but I may fairly expect five days' additional by the train on the way from McMinnville. I think I can live until the 20th if this train does not fail me.

Respectfully,

JOHN M. PALMER,

Major-General, Commanding.

HEADQUARTERS THIRD DIVISION, TWENTY-FIRST ARMY CORPS,

Jasper, September 3, 1863.

The command is supplies to include the 18th.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

H. P. VAN CLEVE,

Brigadier-General, Commanding.

Respectfully submitted.

P. P. OLDERSHAW,

Captain and Asst. Adjt. General, Twenty-first Army Corps.

Jasper, September 3, 1863-10 a.m.

Brigadier-General WOOD:

GENERAL: Please send me word when you will probably be across; at what hour. General Van Cleve is here. Nothing yet from General Crittenden.

Respectfully and truly,

P. P. OLDERSHAW,

Assistant Adjutant-General.

SHELLMOUND, September 3, 1863-3.20 p.m.

Captain P. P. OLDERSHAW,

Assistant Adjutant-General:

CAPTAIN: So far from General Reynolds' division being all over at 3 p.m. yesterday, the last of his train got over at 2 p.m. to-day. As I had informed you this morning, Colonel Buell seized an opportunity when General Reynolds was doing nothing last night and threw his brigade over. I trust to be able to get over all that I have
