U. S. GRANT Lt Gen

P. S. The black lines on the map show the position of our troops

"I wish to make the following report of my position. My lines extend from Todds Tavern, Furnaces, Dowadalls Tavern, Ely's Ford, U. S. Ford, Banks' Ford, the road to Fredericksburg, and patrol Six (6) miles down the Telegraph road. The lines are very much extended and I cannot spare any more troops to accompany trains to Belle Plains without endangering trains at this place. If the General Commanding desires any change in my position, I should be happy to hear from him. I would like to know the exact position of our troops at the front that I may be able to conform with their changes." LS, DNA, RG 108, Letters Received. O. R., I, xxxvi, part 2, 733.
