the one at Murfreesborough, which is already fixed. One regiment is to be stationed at Tullahoma, one at Stevenson, and two at Bridgeport. The major-general commanding directs that you put him in position as quickly as possible, and relieve and bring to the front those of the other division now on the line of the route in accordance with the schedule sent you. In addition to that list there has been added a block-house at Estill Springs, 20 men, and one at the wood-yard between there and Tullahoma of 20 men, making a force of 1,400 men required to man the block-houses from Nashville to Chattanooga. One regiment can be withdrawn from the garrison of Nashville and placed farther down the road.

I am, general, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

HENRY STONE,

Assistant Adjutant-General.
