To Maj. Gen. Henry W. Halleck

Culpepper Va
Apr 27th 1.30 P. M/64

MAJ GEN H. W. HALLECK
CHIEF OF STAFF.

There are rumors brought in by deserters that Longstreet reinforced by Beauregards troops will move down the Shenandoah Valley. Should they do so throw all the force you can to head them, taking, if Gen Burnside should still be north of the Rappahannock, all or as much of his force as necessary. If such a movement is commenced by the Enemy after we start from here I will follow him with force enough to prevent his return south
