ambulances, hospital stores, and ammunition, and all other supplies that will be required on taking the field. It may be necessary to march before their arrival.

Lieutenant ColonelH. C. RODGERS,

Assistant Adjutant-General, Twelfth Army Corps:

Order relating to Second Brigade will be attended to. What provision will be made for the line thus vacated and the two companies of that brigade now at Shelbyville?
