Two Battalions of Ill have reported, which with three Comp's of our men are not enough. At Bethel there are two Regts of Infantry and one of Cavalry. Not knowing the extent of the Cavalry accompanying me I send you the above as a suggestion. Shall I look for more Cavalry, and if so who will command it?"
