row. You must protect the railroad with all your force. I have directed
a telegraph office to be opened at Midway. Take charge of Colcock's
cavalry and see that it fights. I fear that it did not win any laurels
yesterday. Keep constantly in presence of the enemy and inform me
of everything important that occurs. Block the roads in front of the

Lieut. M. G. HUDSON,
Aie-de-de- Camp and Acting Assistant Adjutant- General:
LIEUTENANT: I have just arrived with my command at Cypress
Creek. I was not molested by the enemy en route. My wagon train
is already up and camped.
Very respectfully, lieutenant, your obedient servant,

HEADQUARTERS CAVALRY DIVISION,
Beaver Dam Swamp, January 15, 1865.
Acting Assistant Adjutant- General:
We arrived at this place, which is four miles from Gillisonville and
three miles from the forks of the Robertsville and Lawtonville road,
about day this morning, leaving a picket from the Kentucky Brigade
on the Coosawhatchie road. Nothing from the enemy to-day. We
will also picket the road we traveled and the road to Robertsville.
If General Anderson leaves Robertsville our camps ought to be as far
back as the forks of the road. Forage in this vicinity is very scarce.
I will not allow any taken unless by consent of the owners. I think
we could get nearer it by moving to the forks of the road, and picket
and scout just as well. Captain Kanapaux failed to get to Coosawhat-
chie last night, and is here with his battery (four guns). Sergeant
McDaniel, of Wiggins' battery, is with me also, with two guns. What
shall I do with them? McDaniel wants to report to his company, with
General Humes. Please inform me at what hour this command will be
inspected, so that I can have as many men present as possible. The
two guns at Dawson's Bluff were rendered useless and spiked, and all
the ammunition brought off that could be brought with our limited
