HDQRS. CAVALRY CORPS, MIL. DIV. OF THE MISSISSIPPI,

Macon, Ga., May 19, 1865.

Major HUBBARD,

Twelfth Missouri:

MAJOR: I inclose an order for you to proceed to the cavalry depot at Edgefield, then to report to your division commander by letter for orders.* The brevet major-general commanding desires you to lay the bridge over the Eatowah, using the pontoons captured from the enemy. The original bridge train you will take with you to Chattanooga and turn over to the engineer department at that place. Under existing circumstances it is probable that your connection with the Cavalry Corps and the service will soon be dissolved, and the brevet major-general desires to express his high appreciation of your services during the campaign and wishes for your future success.

I am, major, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

E. B. BEAUMONT,

Major and Assistant Adjutant-General.
