MAJOR-GENERAL H. W. HALLECK,
I am making every effort to get supplies to Knoxville for the support of a large force large enough to drive Longstreet out. The enemy have evidently fallen back with most of their force from General Thomas's front, some going to Mobile. Has there been any movement in that direction by our troops ?
