Thomas had now under Schofield's orders twenty-two thousand infantry and aby-third corps, about 10,000, under Major-General J. M. Schofield; Hatch's division of cavalry, abourom Missouri and Wilson remount his cavalry, Schofield's force was therefore inferior to Hood's; buis consideration all others were secondary.

I urge, on the part of the President, speedy action, as it is important to
