Fort Towson, C. N., November 20, 1864.

Brigadier General W. R. BOGGS,

Chief of Staff, Trans-Mississippi Department, Shreveport, La.:

GENERAL: Tyler's brigade (recruits), Price's army, camped last night thirty miles west of here, and I am advised by note from Colonel Tyler are ordered to Clarksville. My courier informs me Fagan camped last night thirty miles northwest of here, near Caffrey's, and that General Price will go through Boggy Depot. I have not been advised by General Price what roads he will send his troops, and hence can do but little more than accumulate supplies at the principal depots, though I am sending wagons loaded up the main road they ought to be on to this place via Caffrey's. Lieutenant Colonel Cearnal, who is serving with Colonel Tyler, informs me that Freeman's, Dobbin's, McCray's, and a portion of Jackman's brigades and Coffee's regiment, went down White River. If this be so they will have a pleasant time with the re-enforcements recently reported under Canby on that river. I am told that Fagan's division (with exception of McCray's and Dobbin's brigades), Clark's division (except Freeman's brigade), Shelby's division, and Colonel Tyler's brigade are in this district. Wood's Missouri battalion has just arrived. I cannot report officially the movements, but only such information as I get.

Very respectfully, general, your obedient servant,


Major-General, Commanding.

Since writing above I have received inclosed copy of latter from General Price; copies are sent Generals Wharton and Magruder.
