. soldiers: I am once more among you, after a long and painful imprisonment. I am anxious to be again in the field. I therefore call on all the soldiers of my command to assemble at once at the rendezvous which has been established at this place. Your country needs your services. The field of operation is wide, and the future glorious, if we only deserve it. Remember how many of your brave comrades are still repining in a felon's cell. They call loudly on you for help. They expect it of you. Will you disappoint them? Come at once, and come cheerfully, for I want no man in my command who has to be sent to his duty by a provost-marshal. The work before us will be arduous, and will require brave hearts and willing hands. Let no man falter or delay, for no time is to be lost. Every one must bring his horse and gun who call. John H. Morgan, Brigadier-General Provisional Army Confederate States. Official: R. A. Alston, Lieutenant-Colonel and Acting A. A. General.
