Wilson report, Franklin, December 17, 1864-1.30 p. m.

HDQRS. CAVALRY CORPS, MIL. DIV. OF THE MISSISSIPPI, Franklin, December 17, 1864-1.30 p. m. [General WHIPPLE:]

GENERAL: The rebels began passing through here early yesterday morning-cavalry, artillery, and infantry. One of our surgeons here says he never saw a worse rabble; they are completely demoralized. I’ll do what I can for the rear guard. Can’t heard definitely of Forrest, though it is reported he withdrew from Murfreesborough yesterday.

J. H. WILSON,
Brevet Major-General.
