HEADQUARTERS DISTRICT OF WEST TENNESSEE,
Memphis, Tenn., October 24, 1864-7 a. m.
Commanding, Mouth of White River:
Yours of 22nd just received. I will have your largest brigade off before 12 m. The other one is up the river at Paducah, sent upon the receipt of a dispatch from General Halleck. I expect it down by to-morrow, and will send it to you forthwith. Forrest's force, I think, is about leaving, or has left, Corinth and Jackson for a raid into Kentucky, or, via Tuscumbia, to Sherman's communications.
Your obedient servant,

Your dispatch of the 20th is received. I have taken all of Price's cannon but two or there, and am trying to continue the pursuit till his force is entirely destroyed or beyond your post.
