It will be seen that General Lee says in his report, published in the August number of the Southern Magazine, that orders were given t the time in General Ewell's presence, showing what was to be my march on each day, and the time of my probable junction with him, and also a note from him from Carlisle, all of which rebuts the idea that I was to hold the bridge. However, afterwards I determined to depart from my instructions and to secure the bridge, cross theby the way of Hunterstown and Mummasburg.
