Maj Genl Reynolds-

I am all right for to night. In the morning I shall be short of Batteries, though I hope to have the road + the bridges in condition to enable me to bring forward some of mine, by the time I shall again require them. The enemy had felled trees across the Chattanooga road over the moun-tain + a slide in the road made it necessary to expend a good deal of labor upon it. From the dense fog to day I have not been able to learn much of the topography of Chattanooga Valley in my front. For this reason I suggest that the operations of tomorrow be suspended until the fog lifts- if it should not require too much detention. I request that Gen’l Smith will forward me the map of which he spoke a day or two since-

Maj Gen’l Hooker     [sm]
