NEAR LAYNESPORT, December 8, 1864-9 p.m.
Major GEORGE A. GALLAGHER, Provisional Army, C. S..,
DEAR MAJOR: I send an official letter stating that I will move to-morrow. I dislike to do so very much without orders, but I am sure it is right and therefore must go ahead. The probability of being ordered back to Clarksville is the only reason why I should not move, and from what I can learn the corn is downstream. Allow me to congratulate you upon your return to duty, for I positively heard that you were either dead or captured or Pocahontas, and so reported to all who have asked after you. I will see you in a few days.
