Major C. S. STRINGFELLOW,

Assistant Adjutant-General, Dublin:

General Imboden reports enemy advancing up the Valley, and says signal corps reports them at McDowell; asks me to move to Millborough, if my orders will permit. No movements in Greenbrier this way; shall I move as requested? If they at McDowell, I should be at least at the Cow Pasture bridge or at Millborough.
