Colonel Sorrel:

Colonel: Am at lines on New Market road, and have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your dispatch of 4.30 p.m. on account of water I will encamp tonight at Laurel Hill Church on this road, with my headquarters near the church. Be kind enough to let me know where General Anderson’s headquarters are, where the remainder of the cavalry is on this side of river, where I had better proceed tomorrow, and the situation, &c.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
