HDQRS. NORTHERN DISTRICT, DEPT. OF THE SOUTH, Folly Island, S. C., February 9, 1865.
Captain W. L. M. BURGER,
Assistant Adjutant-General, Department of the South:
CAPTAIN: In pursuance to verbal instructions received February 6 from Major-General Foster, and no orders to the contrary having been received up to this moment (3. 30 p. m., February 9, 1865), the movement ordered will be carried out to-night and to-morrow. The only co-operation on the part of the navy I have been able to secure is the action of the naval force commonly posted in Stono Inlet, viz, two gun-boats and two mortar schooners. Ensign Neil has arrived with the military gun-boats Augusta and Savannah, but has not yet reported to me. No rations have yet arrived. There are at present no indications of an intended evacuation of Charleston by the enemy. There seems to be in part new troops around Charleston, as the interecepted signal dispatches constantly show new names. Yesterday, February 8, certain officers at Mount Pleasant were ordered to report themselves for duty at Jacknosborough.
I have the honor to be, respectfully, your obedient servant,
Brigadier-Geneal, Commanding District.
