Fayetteville {N. C.} March 7, 1865
Major-General D. H. Hill
   Should General Bragg be about to fight join him for battle. Keep your cars and return the moment it is over. Ascertain if General Bragg can command cars to transport your troops at a moment's notice. Tell me in what time the trip can be made. I beg you to forget the past for this emergency.
