(Received 2. 45 o'clock.)
Colonel T. B. ROY,
Steamer got aground. Thirty-second Georgia delayed. Forty-seventh Georgia (about 400) at depot, but delayed by train coming from Savannah. Breakdown on the Augusta road 112 miles from here will delay re-enforcements. Will let you know when Forty-seventh Georgia leaves.

SAVANNAH, November 29, 1864.
Major General S. JONES:
If any other regiment can be better spared than the Thirty-second Georgia it may be sent to Pocotaligo instead.
T. B. ROY,
