HEADQUARTERS FIFTH ARMY CORPS, July 11, 1864-11.55 p.m.

Brigadier-General GRIFFIN,

Commanding First Division:

GENERAL: My orders are for you to strengthen your own left to the extent indicated. I suppose you do not need a staff officer from me to show you where that point is. You can use any part of your reserve brigade necessary to enable you to hold that point. You have nothing special to do with the part assigned to General Crawford.

Respectfully,

G. K. WARREN,

Major-General, Commanding.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

S. W. CRAWFORD,

Brigadier-General, Commanding.

I am, general, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
