To Brig. Gen. William H. L. Wallace

Head Quarters Dist of West. Tenn.
Pittsburg, April 4th 1862

BRIG. GEN. W. H. L WALLACE
COMMDG. 2ND DIVISION

Please send out order immediately to have Stones 1 and Magroffs batteries join Major Gen L. Wallace's command at Crump's Landing, at an early hour tomorrow.

These are new Batteries that have been sent up recently and I do not know where they have been temporarily assigned. It is believed that the enemy are reinforceing at Purdy, and it may be necessary to reinforce Gen. Wallace to avoid his being attacked by a superior force. Should you find danger of this sort, reinforce him, at once, with your entire Division.

I am, Genl, Very Respectfully
Your Obt Servant.
U. S. GRANT.
Major. Gen. Commdg.
