ctions. Campbell Brown, Formerly Aide-de-camp and Assistant Adjutant-General on General Ewell's staff. Spring Hill, Tenn., December 29, 1884. [Correspondence.] Union Mills, July 25, 1861. General Beauregard: sir,—In a conversation with Major James, Louisiana Sixth Regiment, he has left the impression on my mind that you think some of your orders on the 21st were either not carried out or not received by me. My first order on that day was to hold myself in readiness to attack—this at eft flank, and had to be met and checked there, for otherwise he would have taken us in flank and rear, and all would have been lost. Yours truly, G. T. Beauregard. General R. S. Ewell, Union Mills, Va. P. S.—Please read the above to Major James. N. B.—The order sent you at about eight A. M. to commence the movement on Centreville, was addressed to General Holmes and yourself, as he was to support you, but being nearer Camp Pickens, the headquarters, than Union Mills, where you

Hearing the firing renewed on my right, I advanced the left wing, Third South Carolina, James's battalion and Second South Carolina, and gained, in some points, the crest of the hill within a few yards of the enemy's. After one of the most gallant struggles I have ever witnessed, especially on the part of the Third South Carolina and James's battalion, which occupied a position in front of the enemy's battery, I was compelled to fall back to a point about two charge, driving back Anderson's brigade in some confusion. With hearty cheers the Second and Third South Carolina and James's battalion engaged them with the utmost enthusiasm. Anderson's brigade promptly reformed and opened fire. His reserve s successor, was instantly killed. The command then devolved on Captain E. J. Goggin. Captain J. M. Townsend, commanding James's battalion, was killed leading the charge upon the enemy's stronghold. LieutenantCol-onel Hoole, Eighth South Carolina

General Beauregard, of the demand made upon Major Anderson, of his refusal, and of the time at which firing would begin. They were also notified that the first shot would be fired from a battery at Fort Johnson, on James Island, commanded by Major James. Soon after the order was received, the Wee Nees manned both of the batteries in their charge. Though these men afterwards learnt to sleep under fire, it can well be understood that there would not be much sleep that night. We looked anxiouny of the guns of Sumter were aimed at us, though some of the balls fired at the batteries nearer to Cummings Point came uncomfortably near to us—so near, indeed, as to interfere with my dinner on that day. When I reprimanded my faithful servant, James, for his delay of the meal, he excused himself because the balls had come so near. When I told him, with a little impatience, that the Yankees were not trying to kill black people, he made use of an expression which sounds very much like one si
