Dear General, I send you herewith enclosed a slip showing the intended movements of the enemy, no doubt against the troops in western Tennessee. I think you ought to hurry up your troops to Corinth by railroad, as soon as practicable, for there or thereabouts will soon be fought the great battle of this controversy. General Bragg is with me ; we are trying to organize everything as rapidly as possible. Yours truly,
General A. S. JOHNSTON, Stevenson, Ala.
