I have just recd your favor of this date.
As the Artillery Men are wanted for a particular purpose, I request you to have them sent down this night & not wait for the Peices of Artillery, unless you can immediately find the means of conveyance for the 12 Pounders—Let the Officer report himself at Head Quarters when he arrives.
