Blunt: sir: I have the honor to report to you a somewhat severe engagement with the enemy on the twentieth instant. I had eight hundred (800) mounted men guarding my supply line, to cover approaching trains, when the enemy, in the night, crossed the Arkanas River with five regiments, going a mountain road. A scout I had sent, failing to do his duty, left that road unwatched, and they approached within five miles of me, getting me on the left flank.

General Carr, followed by his staff, rode up to the ravine from the railroad, stopping just below the crest of the hill, and sat like a statue while around him passed the hissing hail of lead. Lawler's brigade, on the left, advanced nearly to the works, and while Os
