HEADQUARTERS FIFTH ARMY CORPS, October 1, 1864-12.45 p. m.

[Colonel LOCKE:]

COLONEL: General Crawford wishes me to say that he will send a guard through all the camps to pick up any stragglers there may be. He thinks there are but few of them, however. There has been heavy picket-firing on the right of our line about where the enemy broke through on the 19th of August. Lieutenant Clarke reports half an hour ago "the enemy advancing a skirmish line upon our right of the railroad. We cannot see any line in the rear of it, but the woods would hide it if there was a line." General Meade has not yet arrived here.

Very respectfully,

A. S. MARVIN, JR.,

Assistant Adjutant-General.

Your orders about bedding, &c., will be attended to.

M.
