This arrangement was partially instituted on the 11th instant, and fully consummated on the 14th, since which no event worthy of note has transpired. The remainder of the brigade is encamped at this station near the fort.

The recent rise in the creek (Crow Creek) rendered it necessary to remove some of the companies from the stockades, but not so far as to interfere, with the performance of their duties.

I have directed Colonel Wood to report from Anderson daily through me. If necessary to have daily reports from the commander at each bridge, please advise me.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

ORLAND SMITH,

Colonel Seventy-third Ohio Regt. Comdg. Second Brigade.
