Louisburg, Warrenton, Lawrenceville, and Petersburg. You will turn in all ammunition, both artillery and infantry, now in the wagons, and have on the men only what they carry in their cartridge-boxes. All foraging will be stopped. What is drawn from the country will be purchased, and carefully issued from the wagons. All persons improperly mounted will be deprived of their horses, and all prisoners of war, surplus animals, picked-up vehicles, and the ammunition will be turned over to Major-General Schofield or an officer designated by him to receive them. The greatest desire is felt on the part of our general-in-chief, as well as of every officer having the honor of the army at heart, to make this march a model one for propriety of conduct, showing to our people that when there is no war we can obey the laws and respect private rights with jealous care. This army is very proud of its record. Let, then, every officer and man do his best to keep it unsullied. Guards will be sent in advance of the column and placed at every house, and every possible precaution taken to prevent the misconduct of any straggler or marauder. Punishment for entering or pillaging houses will be severe and immediate.

Very respectfully,

O. O. HOWARD,

Major-General.
