Assistant Adjutant- General.

CUMBERLAND, June 14, 1864.

Major MEYSENBURG,

Assistant Adjutant- General, Martinsburg:

Your telegram of this date received. Have ordered Colonel Harris to hold the Sixth Virginia Cavalry at Beverly till further orders. All of the available force of the Twenty- second Pennsylvania Cavalry, about 100 men, left on the 12th on a ten days' scout through Hardy County after guerrillas. They will be sent to you on their return, as ordered. I beg leave respectfully to represent to the general that the withdrawal of the Twenty- second will leave me entirely without cavalry, and consequently I will be unable to scout the country in my front or pursue and punish small bands of guerrillas and horse- thieves. I do not understand the last paragraph of your telegram in regard to the Irish Brigade.

B. F. KELLEY,

Brigadier- General.

CUMBERLAND, June 14, 1864.

Colonel T. M. HARRIS,

Beverly:

Hold the Sixth Virginia Cavalry at Beverly until further orders.
