and to rescue our brethren from the grasp of armed traitors. You are to act in concert with the Virginia troops and to support their advance. I place under the safeguard of your honor the persons and property of the Virginians. I know that you will respect their feelings and all their rights. Preserve the strictest discipline; remember that each one of you holds in his keeping the honor of Ohio and of the Union. If you are called upon to overcome armed opposition, I know that your courage is equal to the task; but remember that your only foes are the armed traitors,--and show mercy even to them when they are in your power, for many of them are misguided.

B. Mcclellan, Major-General Commanding. --Ohio Statesman, May 30.
