To Maj. Gen. Don Carlos Buell

Head Quarters, Dist of West. Tenn.
Pittsburgh, April 7th 1862.

MAJOR GEN. D. C. BUELL
GENL:

When I left the field this evening my intention was to occupy the most advanced position possible for the night, with the Infantry engaged through the day and follow up our success with Cavalry and fresh troops expected to arrive during my last absence on the field. The great fatigue of our men, they having been engaged in two days fight,

and subject to a march yesterday and fight to day, would preclude the idea of making any advance to night without the arrival of the expected reinforcements. My plan therefore will be to feel on in the morning with all the troops on the outer lines, until our Cavalry force can be organized ( one Regiment of your Army will finish crossing soon) and a sufficient Artillery and Infantry support to follow them are ready, for a move.
