formed line of battle near Hunt's house, on the prolongation of Brigadier-General Bate's line. Whilst occupying this position the enemy threw shot and shell into my lines from a battery on the right. The Sixth regiment Florida volunteers (Colonel Findley) lost one lieutenant, one sergeant, and one private killed, and two privates wounded. I promptly moved the brigade forward so as to get the cover afforded by the opposite hills. About twelve o'clock M., by direction of Brigadier-General the responsibility of ordering the other regiment and the piece of artillery to follow, and communicated the facts to General Buckner as I passed along. The Sixth Florida and Fifty-fourth Virginia regiments had been already put in motion by Colonel Findley, senior Colonel.

Coffry and myself were in our small tent just after Captain Findley had read a chapter in a Bible, which I now have and in which I placed all the notes of all my travels, a largCaptain Findley had read a chapter in a Bible, which I now have and in which I placed all the notes of all my travels, a large shell fell right at our feet and covered us all with sand, but fortunately did not explode nor break up our accustomed worship. We were guarded by negro troops commanded by Colonel Hallowell, who was a heartless man, and under him the most cruel treatment was experienced. We were not allowed any privileges, and often fired into by the guards for the most trivial offence and several men were wounded. There was a plan on foot to tunnel out and make our escape, but the equinoctial storm f
