I hope, General, that you will appreciate this service on the part of a portion of my division, and give credit to whom credit is due. All the brigades, except Schenck's, obeyed the order to return to their original positions. By some misunderstanding, which is not satisfactorily explained, this brigade proceeded direct to Washington, one regiment, as understood, passing directly through the camp they left on the 16th inst.
