HEADQUARTERS KELLY’S DIVISION,
Near Cross Keys, July 10, 1864-6 p. m.
Major E. S. BURFORD,
MAJOR: I have the honor to inform you that I have just arrived at this point with Dibrell’s brigade. Colonel Hannon reports all quiet in his front; he also reports the force which crossed at McAfee’s Bridge to have withdrawn to within half a mile of the bridge, leaving only a small force this side of the river. Colonel Gaines reports the enemy in the vicinity of Roswell to have erected fortifications. Their force is cavalry. I am establishing a courier line from this point to corps headquarters, passing by way of Buck Head.
J. H. KELLY,
From Brigadier General John H. Kelly to Major E. S. Burford – July 10, 1864
