GEN. W. L. DAVIDSON TO GEN. JETHRO SUMNER.

7 A. M.

“I learn the enemy left Charlotte at 4 o'clock last evening, and where five miles below town on the road to Armour's ford. The conjecture is that their design is to go in quest of our western army, as they were inquiring the nearest ford on the Catawba river. I am now preparing to march to Charlotte.”
