Camp at McMinnville Tenn Aug 14 1863 My dear Davidson Yours of 29th ult with postscript of the 30th I received several days ago. I have been looking for another from you in answer to one I sent by Porter enclosing $250. I suppose the money safely reached you. You will see by the heading above that we have again dropped back into Tennesee. We are now cooperating with Genl Van Cleve’s Division which is stationed here. 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. We have been on a couple of scouts since our arrival and in one of them the 4th Mich had three men killed. 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.
