GENERAL J. E. JOHNSTON,
You are a General in the Confederate Army, possessed of the power attached to that rank. You will know how to make the exact knowledge of Brigadier-General Beauregard, as well of the ground as of the troops and preparation, avail for the success of the object in which you co-operate.
The zeal of both assures me of harmonious action.
