Has General Garrard been to connect with me; and where has he been directed to have his headquarters?
GEO. H. THOMAS,

He was notified two days ago to study the roads and ground thoroughly. He will have his headquarters in the woods between Big Shanty and the north point of Kenesaw. I will direct him to report to you.
