Ford and Twentieth at the United States Ford to-morrow. General Logan is not yet n, and I suspect he has found his roads badly cut up by the troops that preceded us.

COLONEL: I have the honor to submit the following report of the movements of my division this instant: Breaking camp at 9 a. m. I moved to the Pamunkey River, where I was compelled to halt my troops until 11 a. m., in order that I might get possession of the bridge over this stream, which was occupied by the troops and trains of the First Division. Continuing my march from thence upon the old stage road I moved my command to Reedy Swamp, in the vicinity of White Chimney, where I placed it in bivouac at 6. 30 p. m., having marched a distance of ten miles, my march being much retarded by the trains of the First Division. I shall, unless otherwise ordered, continue my march on Bowling Green to-morrow, breaking camp at 5 a. m.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
