Rev. J. Wm. Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: Dear Sir — In the interest of truth, and for the vindication of a brigade that captured and held for twelve (12) hours a position in rear and not four hundred (400) yards from the summit of Cemeteression of the points vacated, and really slept within our lines, but the ground was rough and the woods so thick that their generals did not realize till morning what they had gained. General Edward Johnson's division (composed of a Louisiana, Jones', George H. Steuart's and the Stonewall brigades), arrived and formed line of battle the night of July 1st, 1863, on the left of the army. The Stonewall was the extreme left, next ours (Steuart's), and the two other brigades on our right. About

Letter from General A. L. Long. To J. William Jones, D. D., Secretary of the Southern Historical Society: Dear Sir — Having received through General Beauregard the June number of the Southern Historical Papers, containing a criticism by General Thomas Jordan of my article on the Seacoast Defence of South Carolina and Georgia, published in the February number of that magazine, I would be glad through the same source, without receding from my statement embraced in that article, to disclaim the intention of ignoring the services of General Beauregard and others in the important work of seacoast defence, either prior or subsequent to the operations of General Lee. It was my purpose to write a chapter on the subsequent defence of the coast, in which I intended to record faithfully the operations of Beauregard and others, but the article of General Jordan will probably render this unnecessary. I will, however, in this connection, venture the assertion that the article of Gener

orning at roll-call in the French army, answer was made, as the front-rank man on right of his old company stepped forward and saluted: Mort sur le champ de bataille--dead upon the field of battle. Such monument, such epitaph, at least, is that of A. P. Hill, and the men of his old corps remember with sorrowful pride that his name lingered last upon the dying lips of Lee and of Jackson. Tell Hill he must come up. --Colonel Wm. Preston Johnston's account of Lee's last moments--Rev. J. Wm. Jones' Personal Reminiscences of General R. E. Lee, p. 451. A. P. Hill, prepare for action. --Dabney's Life of Jackson, p. 719. Of the other, who fell but the evening before at Five Forks, I almost fear to speak, lest I should do hurt to that memory which I would honor. For to those who knew him not, the simplest outline of a character so finely tempered by stern and gentle virtues, would seem but an ideal picture touched with the tender exaggeration of retrospective grief; while to

The letter of Major Scheibert, of the Prussian Engineers, to which we alluded in our last number, has excited such general interest, and so strong a desire has been expressed to see it in print, that we trust our gallant friend will excuse the liberty we take in presenting it to our readers: Custrin, Prussia, 1876. Rev. J. Wm. Jones, D. D., Secretary Southern Historical Society: Dear Sir — With the most sincere thanks for the regular sending of your Society Papers, which give me great pleasure, and create great interest in the historical world, I transmit to the Society, by the kindness of Colonel C. S. Venable, a copy of the French edition of my work on the Civil War in North America.
