MY DEAR SIR :
Since the General wrote you, this morning, he has conversed with the person mentioned in his letter ; he is impressed with the idea of the enemy's intending to advance immediately; preparations are making to accomplish it as early as possible. The movement towards the Santee was probably to draw the attention of part of our force to that quarter. You will join the army with the troops under your command as early as possible. Be pleased to communicate to Gen. Marion on the subject. Gen. Greene wishes to hear from you this night. I am with sincerity yours,
J. BURNET, Aide-de-Camp,
