Major General Gillmore
Commanding Officer, U.S. Forces, Department of the South
orders Brigadier General Seymour
to concentrate forces at Baldwin
Jacksonville, FLA., February 12, 1864
General Seymour, (By cuurier from Baldwin):
I want your command at and beyond Baldwin concentrated at Baldwin without delay. I have information of a mounted force that may trouble your right flank by fording the Saint Mary's River. When we landed here they were 80 miles from Baldwin, on the Albany and Gulf Railroad. You should have scouts well out on your front and right flank. I have sent word to Colonel Tilgman to be on the alert. I think Fribley had better move forward and join you, but you must judge. The locomotive has not arrived yet.
