eneral Whiting's movement, I insisted as a part of my order to him, that he w'd obey no orders, from any source not passing through me.
Such, General, are my recollections (distinct) of those events—which you will find in the No's. of the Land We Love, or Baltimore Southern Magazine in which they were published a few years since, numbers of which I sent you at the time.
I regret that I have not a copy of Ransom's subterfuge in defence of Bragg or I w'd send it to you with pleasure, but you will probably find it in the back files of the Richard Whig, in which, I think, it was published, shortly after the Battle of Drury's bluff.
With my kind regards to your family, & hoping that you may furnish Mr. Marrin with your recollections of that eventful period of our late war,
I remain, Sincerely y'r friend G. T. Beauregard. General H A. Wise, Richard, Va.
P. S.—The events of the 15th, 16th, 17th & 18th of June, ‘64, about Petersburg were also critical & glorious.
