Maj.-Gen. CROOK,
Cmdg. Department of West Virginia, Cumberland, Md.:

January 25, 1865.

Two of my scouts have just returned from Staunton. They think that Rosser meditates a raid westward to Weston or Clarksburg as soon as the weather moderates. Keep a sharp lookout for him at Bull's Gap and Buckhannon.

Maj.-Gen., Cmdg.
