Last order from War Department is to send Hagood's brigade to Richmond in manner prescribed to you by the Secretary of War.

Richmond, May 4th, 1864.
To Genl. G. T. Beauregard, Weldon, etc.:
Unless Newbern can be captured by coup de main the attempt must be abandoned, and the troops returned with all possible despatch to unite in operations in Northern Virginia. There is not an hour to lose. Had the expedition not started, I would say it should not go. Have all practicable arrangements made to transport the troops to this place with the greatest despatch.

(Received at 4. P. M.)

Your telegram just received. All necessary orders are already being given to carry out your instructions. One of my aids will leave this evening with special orders to General Hoke. Utmost despatch will be used.

Genl. S. Cooper, A. and I. G., Richmond, Va.:
Was it intended, in the order for movement of troops from this Department, that the cavalry and artillery should go also? If so, in what proportion?

Richmond, May 5th, 1864.

Recall all from Washington and Plymouth, except half a, regiment at each, as suggested.

Order now is, to send forward everything available as fast as practicable. Pickett has already been relieved; his troops will follow immediately. I write you to-day.
