confident. Not a single man of our force received the least scratch. The hand of God was evidently there. Major Hood is a cautious, brave and excellent officer. He, such of our Captains as were present, and our other officers, conducted themselves very manfully; and Major Hood told us privates, after the action was over, that he had never seen a more spirited set. The action lasted about thirty minutes. I cannot omit to mention four brave Louisiana soldiers who came from Yorktown and volunteered to go in advance as sharp shooters and scouts. They acted well their part, and avenged the death of their noble Colonel Dreux. In the charge, the Cumberland Troopers were attended by other detachments, and followed, I believe, by a majority of those with guns in the rear. One detachment was not more eager to be engaged than another. If all were not it was because they were ordered to another post. Not more than fifty of our men were actually engaged, I believe. Robert.
