Our regiments had just been reorganized, and, as the senior cavalry officer, I had the outpost. My Headquarters were at Swift Run Gap, and my pickets extended from Culpeper Court-House to the mountains on the east side of the Blue Ridge, and from near Harrisonburgh to Wolftown on the west. A heavy scout was kept watching Geary's command, who was marching on Fredericksburgh to reenforee McDowell. After Shields had passed Warrenton, my regiment was, for the first time, assembled; finding over one hundred unarmed recruits added to my regiment, I was sent to Richmond to get arms, and while en route for that place, General Jackson started after Banks.

It is a general direction and guide, leaving sufficient scope for medical directors of armies to issue orders and make such modifications and changes of detail as may be necessary, from time to time, in their several armies. It extends to all our armies the system adopted eighteen months ago in the army of the Potomac, and which at Fredericksburgh, at Chancellorsville, and at Gettysburgh, according to the testimony of our officers, worked most admirably.
