After Orders

The troops are to be peraded and ready to receive the general precisely at nine o’clock tomorrow morning—As the ground between the New York and first Connecticut brigades is very uneven, the latter will not close up to the former untill the general has passed the line—but as soon as he has passed the left of the line the interval left between these two brigades is to be filled up and the line ready to wheel on the signal.
