HEADQUARTERS FIRST ARMY CORPS, January 21, 1865.

Brigadier General W. H. STEVENS,

Chief Engineer, Army of Northern Virginia:

The weather is so bad that General Longstreet will not keep his appointment with you this morning. He desires especially to call your attention to the ground in front of Elliott's Salient. and on which he believes the enemy will make their attack. He thinks that arrangements can be made, by altering the position of four guns which are in the bottom near by and making such other changes as will suggest themselves to you on the spot, to have a very effective cross-fire over the whole ground. He wishes you to give this object your most careful and prompt attention and spare no effort to make the salient impregnable.

Respectfully, your obedient servant,

O. LATROBE,

Lieutenant-Colonel and Assistant Adjutant-General.

HEADQUARTERS JOHNSON'S DIVISION, January 21, 1865.

Major DUNCAN,
