The fight continued until after dark in the woods, through the dense undergrowth. The contending lines was close to each other, and when the enemy attempted to turn our right, Knox was captured; and he was succeeded by the accomplished and gallant Captain William T.

But don't tell this as coming from me. May 1.—Poor Frank Cone was killed in the trenches to-day by a sharpshooter. He and Oscar Dawson came to see me last night. I mourn the loss of such men. On the Chickahominy, May 10, 1862.—We have been drawn up in line of battle all night, expecting an attack.
