J. J. REYNOLDS,
Major-General, and Chief of Staff.
HEADQUARTERS ELEVENTH AND TWELFTH CORPS, White House, Lookout Mountain, November 25, 1863.
Chief of Staff, Chattanooga:
Upon the clearing up of the fog, since dispatch at sunrise, we can see the enemy's camps over on the slope of Missionary Ridge and in the valley near there. Our glasses are not strong enough to detect how thickly they are filled. I failed to inform you yesterday that we captured two pieces of artillery and about two thousand stand of small-arms; the latter are scattered over the whole field of yesterday.
SIGNAL STATION OPPOSITE SOUTH CHICKAMAUGA, November 25, 1863-9 a.m.
One division infantry is now moving toward our left on Missionary Ridge.
Communication has just been opened with Lookout, and message to General Hooker sent.
ORCHARD KNOB, November 25, 1863-9 a.m.
Do not fire any more from Fort Wood, except an occasional shot into the enemy's rifle-pits on their extreme right, and on top of the ridge, when the enemy show themselves in force.
GEO. H. THOMAS,
WHITE HOUSE, LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, November 25, 1863-9.20 a.m.
Have regiment on Summertown road; one on summit of Lookout. Enemy reported picketing Chattanooga Creek. They appear to be burning camps in valley. I await orders.
