MAJ GEN H. W. HALLECK
CHIEF OF STAFF.

My letter to General Burnside gives no plan but simply requires him to be ready to move any time he may be notified after the 20th instant with whatever force he may then have. I will not want more transportation than you notified me the Qr Master

could spare from Washington. A few Ferries may be required to take up the James.

The order for publication for the removal of Sutlers was without my knowledge and has not my approval. 1
