HEADQUARTERS CAVALRY CORPS, July 22, 1864.
Several more of my scouts have come in, all corroborating the report I sent you this morning that General Garrard had moved toward Covington with his division. Shall I pursue and break up Garrard, or shall I detach a force to follow him?
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
From Major General Joseph Wheeler to Lieutenant General William J. Hardee – July 22, 1864
