s, with his old duties as Inspector-General, on the staff of General Wade Hampton. Time would fail to deal in detail with the active part hrvice may, at least, be touched upon. On September 14th (1864), Hampton, having ascertained through his scouts the exact location of the g English just before Agincourt, had been shrewdly out of beef, but Hampton knew that (as the Constable of France allowed of his adversaries o were kept hot from City Point to Grant's front, and very speedily Hampton was so hard pressed by both cavalry and infantry that a less resoler would have abandoned his booty and thought only of escape. But Hampton knew Lee's great need of proper food for the men, and at all times that grew even closer to their hearts. In his official report, Hampton says (September 27th, 1864): Major Venable, of my staff, was orderessage from gallant Jimmy Deering (one of Lee's Boy Brigadiers) to Hampton, in making his way through the heavily wooded country, rode headlo

u can be spared from my front, and provided I think you can move across the Potomac without disclosing our plans. He speaks of your leaving, via Hopewell Gap, and passing by the rear of the enemy. If you can get through by that route, I think that you will be less likely to indicate what our plans are, than if you should cross by passing to our rear. I forward the letter of instructions with these suggestions. Please advise me of the condition of affairs, before you leave, and order General Hampton, whom I suppose you will leave here in command, to report to me at Millwood, either by letter or in person, as may be most agreeable to him. I think that your passage of the Potomac, by our rear at the present moment, will in a measure, disclose our plans. You had better not leave us, therefore, unless you can take the proposed route in rear of the enemy. As the letter from Lee to Stuart said nothing about moving by Hopewell Gap, which is a gap in the Bull Run Mountains, any allusion

arch 3rd, 1864. The account is given just as it appeared in the Sentinel. It will be seen that this is the continuation of a story of the day before. It is a pity the first installment has not been preserved. But here is the second installment. Our last account represented the column of the enemy that had been repulsed on the Brook Turnpike, as having crossed the Chickahominy in full retreat, and having encamped on Tuesday night near Mechanicsville. They were attacked in camp by Gen. Hampton, who put them to flight, with the capture of seventy or eighty, and a large number of horses. The remainder yesterday made their way down towards Piping Tree Ferry on the Pamunkey. The column that appeared on the road that comes into the city from the West, lost no time after their repulse on Tuesday night in hastening after their comrades of the other column. On yesterday they crossed the Chickahominy, and at half-past 4 in the afternoon found themselves confronted at the Old Church

1st, if he had burned the wagons. He crossed the river the night of the 27th, and York is about 80 miles from the ford. More important is the statement of General Stuart himself in his report in more than one place. Thus, on p. 695, Rebellion Records, Vol. XVII, he says, speaking of the engagement at Hanover: If my command had been well closed now, this column would have been at our mercy; but, owing to the great elongation of the column, by reason of the 200 wagons and hilly roads, Hampton was a long way behind, and Lee was not yet heard from on the left. Again on page 696, he says: Our wagon train was now a subject of serious embarrassment, but I thought by making a detour of the right by Jefferson, I could save it. Two possibilities were eliminated by the drag put on General Stuart's column by the captured wagon train: 1. But for the delay thus occasioned he might have marched from Westminster to Gettysburg by Littletown, as apparently he hoped to do. for he could
