I infer that the enemy is in some considerable force at Pea Ridge, that yesterday morning they crossed a Brigade of two Regiments of Infantry, 1 Regiment of Cavalry, and 1 Battery of Field Artillery to the Ridge on which the Corinth Road lays. They halted the Infantry & artillery at a point about 5 miles in my front, and sent a detachment to the Lane of Gen Meeks on the North of Owl Creek, and the Cavalry down towards our Camp. This cavalry captured a part of our advance picket, and afterwards engaged the two companies of Colonel Bucklands Regiment as described by him in his Report herewith enclosed. Our Cavalry drove them back upon their Artillery & Infantry, Killing many and bringing off ten prisoners, all of the 1st Alabama Cavalry, Whom I send to you.
