Your dispatch of 3.10 p. m. to General Gregg just received. I do not know where General Gregg's headquarters are. General Ferrero reported firing to the south of the Gurley house, and has his division under arms.

Can you tell me how much force appeared south of the Gurley house just before dark and whether the line was re-e[nforced]; and will you not give your officer in command of the picket near me instructions to send me word direct if anything occurs to-day?
