HEADQUARTERS TENTH ARMY CORPS.

Referred to Major-General Butler. General Turner reported to me with his command yesterday morning.

Q. A. GILLMORE,

Major-General, Commanding.

[Third indorsement.]

The troops I expected to cover my right flank while the column of assault was moving are not under my orders. Can General Gillmore spare Marston's brigade to come back to me?

Major-General.

General TURNER,

Commanding Second Division, Tenth Army Corps:

GENERAL: The major-general commanding directs that you immediately organize all regimental, brigade, and division trains, under charge of proper staff officers, which trains are to be used for bringing up supplies. When rations, forage, or ammunition is needed word should be immediately sent to the proper staff officer in time, that they may be brought up for distribution to the troops.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
