In this fight I was not engaged, but was under a heavy fire of shot and shell. On the 2d and 3d of July we were marching after the enemy; but their retreat was too speedy to be overtaken. We then bivouacked for several days, invited the enemy to battle, which was not accepted. We then marched to this point, arriving here on the 9th instant. My loss was very heavy for a small command. The report of casualties has been sent in, as well as that of the action of the officers and men, which need no correction. I am happy to say that, with a few exceptions, I am truly proud of the officer
