Major-General HURLBUT:

I dispatched you last night. Our advnce is now at Ruckersville, or near there. Ihave been trying to determine whether Price and Van Dorn stick together and the routes of retreat. Th e question is still unsettled, but portion of Price's train cmped west of the Htchie, and a larger portion of Van Dorn's trin reported to have camped west of the Muddy. Fromthefront the nes looks as if they haad not separated. You are a figting general. Yu must support us. We have watched railroads and points long enough. Now is the time to make them watch. Now is the time. Move heaven and earth toget what you want- your artillery in shape, &c.,- and let us go into them. We can do it, and others must look out for thcountry we leave inour rear. Sunrise dispatch recieved. Sherman should move down on Pillow and the other people who rally to him. We want you. If we are opposed we must fight an whip. At least you must not leave your position now. YOur position is a good one. You say it is my bvictory. I consider half of it yours. You have gained the last of it and certaily not the least. I have ordered fifty wgons of provisions to you. Let us go on. We have the whole thing before us. Wht says Grant to this!
