headquarters, 19th August, 1862--4.45 P. M.
General J. E. B. Stuart, Commanding Cavalry:
General: I have just returned from Clarke's Mountain. The enemy, as far as I can discover, is retreating on the road to Fredericksburgh. His route is certainly north of Stevensburgh, and is thought to be through Brandy Station, over the Rappahannock, by Kelley's Ford. You will, therefore, have to bear well to your right after crossing the Rapidan, unless you can get other information. I propose to start the troops at the rising of the moon to-morrow morning, which will give the men and horses a little rest; and I believe we shall make more than by starting at night. It is so late now that they could not get off before. The order for to-morrow you will consider modified as above. If you can get information of the route of the enemy, you will endeavor to cut him off; otherwise, make for Kelley's Ford, over the Rappahannock. Send back all information you can gather. I shall cross at Summerville Ford, and follow in the route of the troops toward Brandy Station. If you can get off earlier than the time I have appointed, to advantage, do so.

Very respectfully, etc.,

R. E. Lee, General.
