HDQRS. FIRST DIVISION, SEVENTH ARMY CORPS,
Little Rock, Ark., May 23, 1864.

COMMANDING OFFICER,

Third Brigade, First Division, Seventh Army Corps:

SIR: You will send a scout of 400 men under proper officers to Jenkins' Ferry, to start early to-morrow morning, provided with three days' rations. Guides will report to you from Captain Smith's company of independent scouts. It is reported that a body of the enemy's cavalry, numbering 100 to 300 men, was to cross the Saline River to-day at Pratt's Ferry (7 miles above Jenkins') to reconnoiter and conscript. The object of the scout to start in the morning is "to ascertain the truth of this report, get information generally, and clean out any parties of rebels that may be about."

By order of Brigadier General F. Salomon:

GEO. W. BURCHARD,

Acting Assistant Adjutant-General.

Captain C. H. DYER,

Assistant Adjutant-General:

A party of my men have just returned from a scout in the direction of Pine Bluff. Do not think that any force has crossed the river above the Bluff. Will send a large party to-morrow to scout the country from near the Bluff to Bear Skin Lake.

O. WOOD,

Colonel, Commanding.
