General Waddell.

The Army is now encamped at Hermon Husbands's and it will take me some days to settle the Country in these parts. The Inhabitants come in fast to submit themselves to Government. I think it expedient you should march and join me as soon as possible; however should you foresee any obstructions in this plan you will acquaint me therewith that I may send you such reinforcements to meet you on your march as will facilitate our Junction.
