Chapter LIX. CORRESPONDENCE. ETC.UNION.

Alabama Cavalry and Ninth Illinois Mounted Infantry can be fully supplied if they report to me to-morrow with their wagon trains. They can accompany my people. They should bring ammunition, as we expect to have a little fight. If you will send a few of your head- quarters wagons I will have them loaded with forage, honey, sweet potatoes, & c. My picket-line alone will be left between the Ogeechee and the Savannah. It will answer every purpose, however. I can now bring np my convalescent stock of horses and mules in less than two weeks.
