, who had always distinguished himself by his bravery, was placed in command of the Third corps in place of Stoneman. Butterfield, who commanded the Fifth, a very able officer and an excellent organizer, was selected by Hooker as chief of the gener one to whom to address this supreme appeal. Hooker, who has scarcely recovered his senses, cannot listen to him; General Butterfield, his chief of staff, who possesses all the necessary qualities to supply his place, is at Falmouth; Warren has gone during the night to join Sedgwick; General Van Alen, who signs every order in the absence of Butterfield, has not the requisite authority to assume command or to transfer it to another; Couch, who would be entitled to this command by right of sen should have transferred the command to another general or caused its functions to be exercised by his chief of staff, Butterfield, whose presence at Falmouth was no longer necessary.

But, as usual, Meade exaggerates the forces of his adversary: he is the more disposed to hesitate because several regiments are asking to be mustered out of service at the very moment they come to join him. Moreover, he has not that confidence in himself indispensable to a chief about to assume great responsibilities. It is true that he has taken as chief of the general staff, in the place of Butterfield, the most able division commander in his whole army—Humphreys, an accomplished officer of the engineer corps, who at Gettysburg has shown himself to be an admirable manoeuvrer under the enemy's fire; a cool and active chief, firm and just, loved and respected by his subordinates, and possessing all the qualities required for the difficult position he occupied on the evening of the 9th.
