On road to Osgood:

No further news except that General Willcox telegraphs me that he rebels have crossed the railroad and are marching [on] Hamilton, Ohio. I leave orders to execute your orders for teams. They will be hard to get. I leave in five minutes, and will go about seven miles this evening. Mullen will move directly. I leave a guide for you, who [will] hand you a letter as to your route.
