Headquarters, June 3, 1861.

General McDowell,
Commanding, &c., Arlington:

General Scott desires you to submit an estimate of the number and composition of a column to be xmshed towards Manassas Junction, and perhaps the gap, say in four or five days, to favor Patterson’s attack on Harper’s Ferry.

The rumor is that Arlington Heights will be attacked to-night.
