It is true that Sherman's instructions to Thomas appear to have contemplated the possibno material loss so far. I shall try and get Wilson on my flank this morning.
Forrest was all around us yesterday, but we brushed him away in the evening and came tvening.
Wilson is here, and has his cavalry on my flank.
I do not know where Forrest is. He may have gone east, but, no doubt, will strike our flank and rear again General Wilson this evening.
