[187] keep pace with the cav'y. At this time there is no danger from the East. Get all information & be guided by events.

Rosser has halted at Gordonsville, awaiting, for the present, the developments of Kilpatrick's movements. As, already advised, I desire you to rejoin your brigade at the commencement of active operations, & hope you will be able to have completed by that time the business that has occupied you during the winter.

Very resp'y,

Your ob't serv't,

R. E. Lee, General. Col. Edward Willis, 12. Geo. Regiment.

Envelope superscribed ‘Confidential.’ in left hand corner; franked ‘R. E. Lee, General,’ in right hand corner, and addressed ‘Col. Edward Willis, Command'g 12. Geo. Regiment.’ Letter and superscription entirely in the handwriting of General Lee.
