Dear Generals
General Briggs wishes me to say in reply to your note that he thoroughly realizes your situation and has strongly represented it both to Cavalry and our Headquarters. His present orders are to hold on at all costs. He is sending some shattered remains of the 7th Brigade to try and protect your left and to dig a fresh line connecting your present dug out with the POTIJZE-VERLONERHOEK ROAD. Both other Brigades have had terrible losses. Will you please let me know as soon as you can where you would like your supplies sent and also any way in which we can help. Wishing you the best of luck and enemy capitulation on your splendid fight.
