J. W. SHAFFER,

Colonel and Chief of Staff.

JUNE 14, 1864-11.30 P. M.

Colonel SHAFFER:

I have assigned General Foster to the temporary command of my division. I shall have to supply Kautz' gap by the 100-days' regiments, which have been assigned to my division. They will furnish 2,200 men. I shall put them under the command of an experienced colonel from Hawley's brigade. I think that Foster can hold his line with the old troops unless more artillery is ordered away. I construe your order for four field batteries to mean four batteries to be taken from the whole line. I have therefore detailed two from Foster and directed Jackson to detail two from the left.
