crans, with, as their forces, as they undoubtedly will, of at least 1,200 men. This disparity in numbers, is too great, although I will certainly give battle to the invading army at some strong point in the mountain passes as I may hope will equalize, to some extent, our numbers. This may occur within the next three days; but should it be deferred for any length of time, I hope the Department will find itself to strengthen us with reinforcements. In the mean time, should Gen.

I have the honor to be, with high respect your obedient servant. [This is signed by Adjutant Peters, because an injury prevents my holding a pen.] Jno. B. Floyd, Brig.-Gen. Com'g Army of Kanawha.
