Greensborough, April 12, 1865 -- 1:35 p. m.
Colonel Otey
   Order the troops sent to Salisbury to leave here by any train which may be here. Let them start as soon as possible. If no trains be here or can be had before the troops could march to the first break in the road {North Carolina RR}, let them march forthwith to that point. Expedition is important. They must move with one or two days' provisions.
