GILLMORE'S, June 12, 1864.
Is have come to my knowledge that officers and employes are in the constant practical of visiting at a gentleman's residence on north side of James River, opposite bermuda. I have ordered it stopped in my command, and respectfully call your attention to the matter. I do not know what precautions have been taken to prevent information getting to the enemy in that direction.

The One hundred and thirty-fourth and One hundred and sixty-third report to me, and were assigned on my line before i received the informal instructions that General Gillmore would assign the now regiments arriving.
I am, colonel, very respectfully, &c.,
