I have met Otis his A.A.G. several times. We are now watching the left flank of our army and East Tennesee. We shall not probably stay here very long.

Our Brigade now consists of 4th Regulars. 4th Michigan. 7th Penna and 3d InDiana. 1st Brigade 2d Cavalry Division. Genl Turchin was removed from the command about two weeks go, and Genl Croaks commands the Division. We however are detached from the Division for the present.
