Commanding Third Division:

GENERAL: The major-general commanding directs that you open the road from Livesay's house by Mrs. McGee's to Wicker's, as indicated in inclosed sketch,* so that it will be practicable for a column.

A party of 125 or 150 amen will be able to open it in three or four hours. If the sketch is not sufficient plain, Mr. Livesay can give the officer in charge of the party the necessary information.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
