Colonel BLACK,

Commanding First South Carolina Cavalry:

COLONEL: The major-general commanding directs that you proceed with as little delay as possible and examine the country from Walhalla to Greenville, S. C., and report to these headquarters the extent of danger to which it is exposed from raiding parties of the enemy and disloyal people from East Tennessee and North Carolina, as well as the most practicable method of giving protection to that part of the State. You will make the examination and report the result, then rejoin regiment. You are authorized to take an officer and 4 men with you as an escort.

Respectfully, your obedient servant,

H. W. FEILDEN,

Captain and Assistant Adjutant-General.

Brigadier General W. B. TALIAFERRO,

As the Eighteen South Carolina Volunteers have to proceed to North Carolina to-day, and we have large numbers of Federal prisoners to guard to Savannah, you will order the Twenty-eighth Georgia to report in this city to Colonel Rhett with as little delay as possible; 100 of them will have to go on to Savannah as guard immediately after arrival. You must put another regiment under orders to relieve the Eleventh South Carolina Volunteers. How soon can the Twenty-eighth [Georgia] get to the city?
