[471] brigade of this army, Kemper's and Shields's batteries, all cavalry at present attached, and as many companies of Colonel Radford's regiment of cavalry as are not assigned to other brigades.

II. The utmost degree of military precaution must be exercised in the execution of these orders, especially in approaching within several miles of Vienna Station; and no unnecessary exposure of our men to fire from intrenchments must occur. The ground in advance, therefore, must be carefully reconnoitred; but at the same time celerity of movement is of great importance.

By command of General Beauregard.
