In accordance with orders received from Headquarters 11th Army Corps, this command will hold itself ready to march at a few hours’ notice.

Three days rations will be issued to the companies, but are not to be distributed to the men till further orders.

Commanders of companies are directed to deliver to Acting Quartermaster Lieutenant Allen all the arms and accoutrements belonging to men, who cannot march with the command, first supplying men in their companies who are deficient in arms, accoutrements or ammunition as far as possible. If any company commander should not in this way be able to supply all the deficiencies, they will send a report of what is needed as soon as possible to these headquarters and they will if possible be supplied from such articles as may have been turned over to the quartermaster by other commanders. Everything intended to be turned over to the quartermaster must be sent to him before 8 o’clock P. M.

The arms and accoutrements of all those whose certificates of disability have been made out during the last few days will of course be turned over as above.
