HEADQUARTERS FIRST ALABAMA CAVALRY,
September 24, 1864.
Captain A. W. EDWARDS,
Acting Assistant Adjutant-General:
CAPTAIN: I sent a scout out on the Alabama road to-day, one mile beyond Coosaville. They returned by way of river road. They saw nothing, neither could they hear of any force in that direction. I will picket the roads out three miles to night and in the morning send a scout up the Summerville road to look after the 300 men that White reports in that vicinity.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
G. L. GODFREY,
Lieutenant-Colonel First Alabama Cavalry.
