Doc. 115.-Beauregard's order.

Headquarters, army of Potomac, Manassas, July 23, 1861.
Colonel:--Mr. George Johnson, special agent of the Quartermaster's Department, is sent to Loudon county for the purpose of collecting [395] wagons, teams, and grain forage for the use of this army.

It is expected that he will have no difficulties whatsoever; that the loyal citizens of your rich county will be glad to have an opportunity thus to furnish supplies for our army, which has so gloriously maintained the independence and sovereignty of Virginia, and driven back in ignominious flight the invaders of her soil.

But, at the same time, all classes of your citizens must contribute their quota; therefore, if necessary, it is expected that constraint must be employed with all who are forgetful of their obligations.

By order of General Beauregard.
Respectfully, Colonel, your obedient servant, Thomas Jordan, A. A. Adjutant General. To Colonel A. T. M. Rust, Commandant Militia, Loudon county.

--Leesburg Washingtonian, July 25.
